Higgerty Law has filed a class action on behalf of the 3,716 City of Calgary employees whose personal and confidential information was compromised.
The Claim alleges various acts and omissions by the City and its employee which resulted in the privacy breach and for which they are liable to the affected employees for damages, including for an intrusion on their privacy, an increased risk of identity theft, financial fraud, financial losses and psychological injury.
$92.9 million is the total estimated amount claimed for general and special damages.
If you are an employee of the City of Calgary and received a letter from the City warning you of the Privacy Breach, you could be eligible for compensation.
These allegations have not been proven in court.
