I received a letter today from my former employer. I haven't worked for them for more than 2 years. They discovered recently that an undisclosed number of W2s were sent to a third party. I'm being offered an identity theft plan.

Do I have any other rights or protections available to me?

The employer is located in California and I am located in Kentucky.

Short answer: you need to talk to a lawyer.

This could be an important legal issue - both the contents of the identify theft plan and possible compensation for the data breach. You don't want to try to get an answer off Workplace stackexchange. You want to consult with someone who knows the law and can advise you on how you should handle the situation.
