==Controversies==
 
===Labor practices===
 
Controversy occurred at the [[University of Pennsylvania]] when labor union [[SEIU]] attempted to unionize AlliedBarton guards at Penn in 2006, but the union met with resistance. Since then, AlliedBarton employees have remained without a union and have been working with [[Jobs with Justice]] to help get benefits and higher pay from the University. The SEIU agreed not to unionize the guards in return for Allied Barton agreeing to be neutral during labor strikes Pennsylvania.<ref>Juliette Mullin (July 31, 2008). [http://thedp.com/node/56511 "Blackstone buys AlliedBarton"]. ''[[The Daily Pennsylvanian]].</ref>
 
AlliedBarton also employs guards at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, who have been unable to organize, in part because federal labor law has provisions permitting an employer not to recognize a union that represents both security officers and other workers.<ref>Daniel Denver (April 22, 2009). [http://www.inthesetimes.com/article/4382/labor_limbo/ "Labor Limbo"]. ''[In These Times]''.</ref>
 
 
AlliedBarton has also been accused of discrimination. In Abdul-Rahman v. AlliedBarton, AlliedBarton agreed to pay $7,000 to Mr. Abdul-Rahman over a discrimination claim.<ref>[http://www.lac.org/doc_library/lac/publications/leading_cases.pdf "Legal Action Center's Leading Cases"]. Legal Action Center.</ref> There is also a pending lawsuit (Braithwaite v. AlliedBarton) in New York federal district court over discrimination.<ref>[http://dockets.justia.com/docket/court-nysdce/case_no-1:2008cv11145/case_id-337912/ "Braithwaite v. Alliedbarton Security Services, LLC"]. ''Justia Dockets & Filings''. Justia.com. Filed: December 22, 2008.</ref>
 
 
A lawsuit was filed on June 24, 2011 in Ohio for unfair labor practices by AlliedBarton.<ref>[http://dockets.justia.com/docket/ohio/ohsdce/1:2011cv00415/147485/ "Howison v. AlliedBarton Security Services, LLC et al"]. ''Justia Dockets & Filings''. Justia.com. Filed: June 24, 2011.</ref>

A lawsuit claims that the city of Atlanta wasn’t playing fair when it turned down a contract worth about $3.5 million to handle security at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
 
 
The suit, filed in Fulton County Superior Court, contends that city officials colluded with Allied Barton Security Services LLC of Conshohocken, Pa., to shut out competition — even after the new company was told it won the bid. .<ref>[http://privateofficernews.wordpress.com/2010/10/04/city-of-atlanta-allied-barton-security-sued-over-contract-collusion-www-privateofficer-com/ "City Of Atlanta – Allied-Barton Security sued over contract collusion"]. Private Officer News Network. October 4, 2010.</ref>
 
 
A negligence lawsuit was filed in November 2010 by the fiancée of Otis Beckford, who was killed in the November 6, 2009, shooting in downtown [[Orlando, Florida]]. The lawsuit states that Beckford's employer and AlliedBarton, the security firm at the Gateway Center office building where the shooting occurred, should have anticipated an attack by shooting suspect Jason Rodriguez one year ago and been better prepared for his violent return. The claim further says that an AlliedBarton guard spotted Rodriguez in the parking garage on the day of the shootings and left his station to look for the man. "It is unknown if this security guard notified [RS&H] that Jason Rodriguez was again on the property", the claim says.
 
 
It goes on to say Rodriguez then passed an empty security desk that should have been occupied, entered an elevator and went up to the RS&H office, shooting six and killing Beckford. The claim says AlliedBarton "had a duty to place the entire building on notice" that Rodriguez was on the premises.
 
 
"Despite their knowledge of Jason Rodriguez's violent propensities and dangerous nature, Allied Barton failed to properly communicate his presence to Reynolds and failed to maintain their security position … thereby allowing Jason Rodriguez to reach the elevators and the defendant, Reynolds', office," the claim states.
 
 
Because of the security firm's negligence, the lawsuit says, Beckford "was injured and killed.".<ref>[http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2010-11-10/news/os-orlando-shooting-lawsuit-20101110_1_rs-h-otis-beckford-jason-rodriguez "Lawsuit claims RS&H should have anticipated downtown shooter attack"].

In July 2011, Nkosi Thandiwe, a security guard employed by Allied Barton was arrested for the shootings of three Atlanta women, one of whom died.<ref>[http://www.cbsatlanta.com/story/15088605/two-shot-one-dead-in-midtown-shooting "Triple shooting suspect waives first appearance"].
