Former Hertz worker had employees' info

November 11, 2006

Hertz Global Holdings Inc., owners of the world's largest rental-car company, said the FBI found a computer containing the names and Social Security numbers of most of Hertz's U.S. workers at the home of a former employee.

The computer also had information including titles and dates of hire of Hertz employees as late as 2002, the Park Ridge, N.J.-based company said in an Oct. 27 filing.

Hertz, which had 22,800 U.S. workers as of June, is cooperating with the FBI in the matter, it said.
