Cornejo v. Amcor Rigid Plastics USA, LLC

Case No. 18-cv-07018 

If you are a current or former employee or independent contractor of Amcor Rigid Packaging USA, LLC (previously known as Amcor Rigid Plastics USA, LLC) that used a finger scanner time clock in the State of Illinois between September 11, 2013 and May 21, 2020, a class action settlement may affect your rights.


A federal court authorized this Settlement Website. You are not being sued. 


A Settlement has been reached in a class-action lawsuit between Amcor Rigid Packaging USA, LLC—which was previously known as Amcor Rigid Plastics USA, LLC (“Defendant” or “Amcor”)—and some of its current and former Illinois employees. The suit alleges that Amcor violated an Illinois law called the Biometric Information Privacy Act (“BIPA”) by collecting employees’ fingerprints on time clocks in Illinois without obtaining their informed written consent. Amcor denies any wrongdoing and maintains that it has not violated any laws. The settlement does not establish who is correct, but rather is a compromise to end the lawsuit and avoid the uncertainties and expenses associated with ongoing litigation.


You are included in the Settlement if you are a current or former employee or independent contractor of Amcor that used a finger scanner time clock in the State of Illinois between September 11, 2013, and May 21, 2020.

If you’re eligible and the Court approves the Settlement, a check will automatically be mailed to you for approximately $750, which accounts for payment of the costs—if approved by the Court—of administrative expenses and legal fees. Amcor has also agreed to comply with the BIPA in the future.
