HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The state of Connecticut has required a private security company hired to protect several office buildings to provide some guards back pay after a review showed the firm breached its contract with the state by underpaying the workers.

In a letter to SOS Security Inc., obtained Monday by The Associated Press, the Department of Administrative Services said it wants the East Parsippany, N.J.-based company to provide a plan for rectifying the breach, including a complete payroll audit for all affected employees. The plan is due May 31.

Meanwhile, the state is requiring that the SOS staff be "made whole" by June 29.

"Failure to provide such plan may result in a termination of the contract," wrote Tina Costanzo, contract team leader with the agency's procurement division, in a letter dated May 14 to two top SOS officials.
