Immigration law firm FRAGOMEN, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy have confirmed a data leak involving personal information of current and former Google employees. The New York based law firm provides employment verification screening services for large companies to determine whether employees are qualified and authorized to work in the United States. < / P > < p > every company operating in the United States needs to keep an I-9 form file for each employee to ensure that they have a legal work permit and are not subject to stricter immigration rules. < / P > < p > but the I-9 form file may contain a large amount of sensitive information, including passport, ID card and driver’s license, as well as other personal identity data, which makes them the target of hackers and identity thieves. < / P > < p > but the law firm said it found last month that an unauthorized third party had access to a file containing & quot; a limited number of current and former Google employees’ personal information. < p > < p > in a notice to the California Attorney General’s office, FRAGOMEN did not say what kind of data was accessed or how many Google employees were affected. Under state law, companies with more than 500 California residents affected by the violation must file a notice with the state attorney general’s office. Michael McNamara, a spokesman for FRAGOMEN, declined to say how many Google employees were affected by the violation. Privacy Policy
