What is the Five Guys Class Action About? 

The Five Guys Class Action alleges that Five Guys Enterprises, LLC (“Five Guys”) failed to adequately protect the personally identifiable information (“PII”) of current and former employees, as well as a small number of dependents or beneficiaries and independent contractors, due to a security incident that occurred around September 2022. This incident potentially exposed their PII due to the use of internet tracking technology, including "pixels," on its websites and MyChart patient portal. Five Guys denies all claims and maintains it did nothing wrong but agreed to settle to avoid litigation costs.
