November 11, 2004

As the investigation into alleged bid-rigging in the insurance industry goes on, The Hartford announced on Thursday that a pair of its employees have been dismissed after the company concluded that they were not fully cooperating with the investigation by the New York Attorney General.

According to the company, the two employees worked for The Hartford’s property/casualty operations in the company’s Los Angeles office.

As stated previously, The Hartford said it is committed to cooperating fully with the New York Attorney General’s investigation and is, with the assistance of outside counsel, thoroughly reviewing the matter internally. The company said to this end, all employees have been instructed to provide assistance with the external investigation and the internal review.

Joshua King, a spokesman for The Hartford, said, “Our conclusion that these employees failed fully to cooperate with The New York Attorney General gives us no alternative but to part ways with them. There is simply no room for compromise regarding The Hartford’s commitment to cooperate.”
