A federal court judge in Chicago on Oct. 13 is expected to rule on approval of a settlement in a class action lawsuit brought by 2,660 Topgolf employees. The lawsuit alleges that Topgolf locations in Naperville, Ill., and Schaumburg, Ill., improperly required workers to scan their fingerprints when punching the clock.
Topgolf and attorneys for the plaintiffs reached the settlement this past spring.
If the settlement is approved, Topgolf would pay more than $2.63 million. Do the math and that means each plaintiff would receive a net payment of up to $630 per person. That payout is based on the 2,660 people who have worked at Topgolf’s Illinois facilities since 2014.
