I live in western colorado, my employer has not been depositing our (65 ) employees 401k funds into our Oppenheimer retirement account . The past 18 months our employer has used our money for their own use ?? There has been a couple employees who asked the owners about the money and the employee was told ,you have a job dont you . I need to know our legal rights regarding this matter , also we need to know why Oppenheimer did not alert us ????? are they too responcable ? this cant be legal some how we should be protected from our 401 K moneys being stolen !!! Our employeer never told us or asked to borrow our money . Is this just another example of ,if you wear a White shirt & tie you can do what you want ? If you look at the current CANCER of the financial institutions you see that we the Blue collar - middle class are being BULLIED . Please help or let me know where we can go for help ... Thanks
