The U.S. Department of Labor is suing U.S. Security Associates Inc., a federal contractor of uniformed and trained guards and other emergency responders in Roswell, Ga., because the company has not agreed to submit documents of the company's affirmative action plans for its facilities in Milwaukee, Wis., and Portage, Ind.

If U.S. Security Associates does not comply, the DOL is requesting that the court cancel all of the company's current government contracts and prohibit the company from signing future contracts.

"Providing OFCCP investigators with access to the documents they need in order to do their jobs is not optional," says Patricia A. Shiu, director of Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs. "U.S. Security Associates is well aware of its contractual obligation to submit the records we seek, and the company's denial of access at these two facilities is especially perplexing given its cooperation in providing the same documentation in past compliance reviews."
