Welcome to the Information Website for the RW Coleman Settlement

If you are a current or former employee, beneficiary or dependent of an employee or former employee, or IRS form 1099 vendor of RailWorks Corporation and/or its subsidiaries and affiliates, you may be entitled to benefits from this Class Action Settlement.

A settlement has been approved in a class action lawsuit pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. The lawsuit alleges that RailWorks Corporation (“RailWorks,” including for purposes of this website all of its subsidiaries and affiliates) failed to safeguard personal information (“PI”) of certain current and former RailWorks employees, beneficiaries and dependents of current and former employees, and vendors who received an IRS form 1099, and that the PI was potentially compromised in a cyberattack that took place against RailWorks on or about January 14, 2020 (the “Security Incident”). RailWorks denies that it did anything wrong.

The Settlement will provide benefits to Class Members whose PI may have been affected by the Security Incident. If you received notice it is because RailWorks’ records show that you may be a Class Member because your PI was potentially compromised in the Security Incident.

Do Nothing

By doing nothing if you have previously signed up for identity theft protection when offered by RailWorks, you received extended protection, paid for by RailWorks, through April 1, 2023.

If you are Class Member who has NOT previously signed up for identity theft protections when offered by RailWorks, and do nothing, you will still be bound by the terms of the Settlement, but you will NOT receive Settlement benefits.
