Reporting on Blackwater Suit by Bloch

June 16th, 2011 by Scott Bloch

Numerous news sources have picked up on the class action law suit filed by Scott Bloch on behalf of former employees of Blackwater Worldwide, now called Xe Services, who had been misclassified as independent contractors and deprived of benefits Blackwater provided to others it called employees.

The Virginia Pilot, Fox News, Legal Times, and many others have reported on this.  See links below.

There has been great interest in the law suit not only by news sources and the public, but by many former employees of Blackwater who have contacted us to inquire into being part of this important case to vindicate the rights of these brave individuals, and their families.  Go here to sign up.
