CHICAGO — An employee has filed a class-action lawsuit against Bud's Ambulance for allegedly violating state law.

Aqueelah Ramsey filed a complaint on Feb. 14 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the defendant required her to scan her fingerprints for use with an employee punch clock system to track hours worked, and failed to provide her and other workers with documents required by the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act to inform her why her fingerprint was being collected, how it was stored and for how long the company intended to keep that information.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant, all damages, injunctive relief, court costs and any further relief this court grants. She is represented by Brandon M. Wise and Paul A. Lesko of Abdullah Carr & Kane APLC in St. Louis.
