Startek Class Action Settlement
If you were notified of a Data Incident involving Startek, Inc. on June 26, 2021,
you may be entitled to benefits from a settlement.
A federal state court has authorized the Notice.
A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Startek, Inc. (“Startek” or “Defendant”), arising out of a Data Incident on June 26, 2021, where Startek was targeted by cybercriminals who may have obtained access to the personally identifiable information (“PII”) of Startek’s current and former employees.
You are a “Settlement Class Member” if you were mailed a notification that your PII may have been impacted in the Data Incident experienced by Startek on June 26, 2021. The Settlement provides the following settlement benefits to Settlement Class Members:
Compensation for Documented Ordinary Losses: If you have documentation showing that you spent money or incurred losses incurred as a result of the Data Incident, you may be eligible for reimbursement up to $500. Documented ordinary losses include reimbursement for: (i) ordinary out-of-pocket expenses; and (ii) fees for credit reports, credit monitoring, or other identity theft insurance product purchased between June 26, 2021 through and including the end of the Claims Deadline as of February 21, 2023; and (iii) up to four (4) hours (at $15 per hour) of lost time spent dealing with the Data Incident, if at least one (1) full hour was spent addressing the Data Incident. You must submit a Claim Form to receive these benefits.
Compensation for Documented Extraordinary Losses: For certain documented extraordinary loses, you may be eligible for reimbursement up to $4,500.
Credit Monitoring and Identity Theft Protection Services: Settlement Class Members who previously claimed the 12-month, 1-Bureau (“1B”) credit monitoring and identity theft protection services, with $1 million in insurance coverage, through Experian, which was offered by Startek in connection with the Data Incident response, will be automatically provided with an additional two (2) years of these services without the need to make an affirmative claim. Settlement Class Members who did not previously enroll in the 12-month, Experian 1B credit monitoring and identity theft protection services, with $1 million in insurance coverage, may submit a claim for two (2) years of 1B credit monitoring and identity theft protection services, with $1 million in insurance coverage.
