MILWAUKEE — City of Milwaukee employees are being warned about a possible information breach.

Mayor Tom Barrett said Friday a flash drive containing city employee information was inside a car stolen from a Dynacare Laboratory employee.

Dynacare Laboratory is a contractor used by Froedtert (FRAY'-durt) Health Workforce Health in connection with the City of Milwaukee Wellness Program.

Barrett says the flash drive contained employee names, addresses, dates of birth, Social Security numbers and gender. No financial information, medical records or test results were included in the database.

Barrett says the city will work with Froedtert Health to investigate the incident and take action.

The mayor says city employees also will receive a letter from Dynacare Laboratories offering a one-year free membership in an identity theft notification program.
