Members of Congress are seeking to help former employees of a former for-profit school in southern California that suddenly closed.  As reported in the Los Angeles Times, the for-profit Career Colleges of America suddenly closed in January 2014 due to a loss of accreditation and a resulting loss of eligibility for federal financial aid.   A letter from two congresswomen from Los Angeles notes that hundreds of employees of the school apparently worked without pay for weeks prior to the closing, and demands that the school's owners remedy the situation. 
Sudden closures of for-profit colleges across the United States often cause significant harm to former students and employees.  If you have concerns about the closure of a for-profit school that you want to share with an attorney, send us an e-mail at
