US Labor Department creates hotline to update former USProtect Corp. employees on status of back wages and retirement benefits

BALTIMORE — The  U.S. Department of Labor has created a hotline for former employees of  USProtect Corp., a defunct Silver    Spring, Md., company  that provided security services for federal buildings in California, Delaware, the  District of Columbia, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey,  Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas and the Virgin Islands.

In November, the U.S. Bankruptcy  Court for the District of Maryland approved a global settlement allowing the  U.S. Department of Labor to recover $7,968,744 in back wages, fringe benefits  and 401(k) plan assets for more than 2,000 security guards formerly employed by  USProtect Corp.

The dedicated number, 443-872-0160, will provide updates related  to back wages and retirement assets due to the employees, as well as give them the  opportunity to submit updated contact information.
