Class action lawsuit against UKG over Kronos Private Cloud ransomware incident

A class action lawsuit has been filed in a California federal court against workplace management software company UKG Inc. UKG makes timekeeping and payroll management software and  offers Kronos Private Cloud services.

As a result of a ransomware attack in December, employees of the firm’s clients were not paid at all, were paid late, or were paid incorrectly, according to allegations by the lead plaintiff, Adam Bente.

As reported by TopClassActions, UKG clients include huge entities like PepsiCo, GameStop, Tesla, the County of Santa Clara, the University of California system and many private and public hospital and health care organizations, according to the lawsuit.  In previous coverage on this site, also noted other Kronos clients that had reported impact.  TopClass Actions reports:

On Dec. 28, UKG acknowledged that employee PII had been compromised. However, Bente says UKG has still not confirmed what information was stolen. Employees of affected companies allegedly reported that their banking information was hacked in the weeks following the UKG ransomware attack, the lawsuit says.

The UKG Data Breach Class Action Lawsuit is Adam Bente v. UKG Inc., Case No. 3:22-cv-00289-GPC-WVG, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California.
