America’s Joblink Alliance has contracted with EPIQ Systems to provide a call center to answer questions, and address concerns from individuals identified as the affected group in this data breach.
EPIQ Systems will be open for business today at 3 PM EDT until 9 PM EDT. Normal call centers hours will be Monday – Friday 9 AM to 9 PM until the issues are considered resolved. The CALL CENTER NUMBER IS 1-844-469-3939.
Any individual who included their email address when signing up for Vermont JobLink services will receive a separate notice within 3 to 7 work days formally confirming their inclusion in this class, and providing an activation key for free credit monitoring for a 12 month period.
