Can I sue my former employer for leaking my social security number, email address and physical address?

They sent a list to 1,000 people (current and former employees) that had the information for the other 1,000 people who received the email.
I know there have been lawsuits for schools leaking data or companies leaking customer data - is employee data different?
Their big offer at this point is 12 months of credit monitoring - which is insulting.
How would I go about pursuing this? Is it only worth it if it is class action?
If I can't sue what are my other options? Changing my social security number, etc?
