LinkedIn Owes You Money
October 07, 2015 typesofaid.com Staff
LinkedIn is a popular social networking site that is used by people who want to meet and network with other professionals. The website recently announced that it would be paying some people up to $1,500 each. This will settle a $13 million lawsuit. The lawsuit involves LinkedIn's "Add Connections" feature. This feature allows users to send invitations to other people who use LinkedIn. It also allows people to import contacts from their email address.
If a person is sent an invitation and does not accept within a certain amount of time, then he or she will be sent one or two other emails. The lawsuit claims that LinkedIn users did not consent to the reminder emails. LinkedIn has since revised the terms of the website and clarified that two reminder emails will be sent when they receive an invitation. However, they have agreed to settle the $13 million lawsuit.
The amount of money that LinkedIn users will be able to receive depends on how many people file a claim. People who used the "Add Connections" feature from September 17, 2011 to October 31, 2014 can file a claim. LinkedIn has already sent its users information about the claim via email. People who file a claim will have to be approved for in order to get compensation.
In order to be approved for compensation, people will have to file a claim before December 14, 2015. The final approval hearing is tentatively scheduled for February 11, 2016 at 1:30 p.m.
