Litigation under the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA) has grown substantially in recent years. The BIPA statute was established more than 10 years ago; however, litigation under its private cause of action, grown in part due to expanded use of biometric data by organizations and produced awareness regarding privacy rights in personal data. This white paper discusses how many BIPA claims have been brought in the employment context and discusses recent case law.
