Does your business collect biometrics?

“Workers Push Back as Companies Gather Fingerprints and Retina Scans,” The Wall Street Journal, March 28, 2019.  State statutes provide workers and others additional rights.

Fingerprints and facial scans are information, just as much as a tax return.  There are limits on how much a business can “capture” from you, and what that business can do with that information.  In Illinois, and perhaps other states in the near future, employees and customers can sue if the employer hasn’t taken the right steps.

So, there’s Information.  There’s Governance (by the government and, perhaps, by a business), and Use, and Compliance.  This one hits on all four.

[Thanks, Judy.  I would have gotten here; just takes some time. Ed.]
