Most of the missing payroll records from Point Park University have been recovered except for a portion believed to have been mangled in a conveyor belt at a third-party shipper.
Last week, Point Park president Paul Hennigan sent a letter to the university community, saying a package from Ceridian, its payroll processing vender, arrived missing accompanying reports, including personal information of employees.The university estimated about 1,800 employees were affected.
Lou Corsaro, managing director of marketing and public relations for Point Park University, today said the shipper has recovered all but 47.5 pages, which are believed to have been mangled in a conveyor belt. The full document was 1,400 to 1,500 pages long.
Mr. Corsaro said that after the documents fell out of the packaging, they were sent to another facility.
"Everyone involved thinks it's highly unlikely the documents ever left the shipper's control," he said.
He declined to identify the shipping company.
He said the university still is offering employees one year of identity monitoring and identity restoration services at no cost to them.
