Needing advice here for a good mate. He has been subject to a breach of confidentiality by persons at his work and details of his medical condition and treatment have been leaked causing rumours and malicious talk. He is devastated but working on as there appears no option.


He received a letter of apology and admission of the breach from the firm. In it, one of the employees named denied wrongdoing and named members of the public/relations of my friend as being the source. They have been named in several reports as having been the source of part of the breach, but were never contacted or informed to supply any facts. In order to keep his job, this employee pinned the blame on members of the public thinking they would never find out.


The persons involved were shown the report by my friend and are furious as they have done nothing wrong but named as being the cause. This employee has caused so much damage and ill feeling and the firm appears to believe him and the lies.


Where does my friend and his relative/friend stand here? He isnt interested in compensation, he just wants to ensure the truth is outed. The members of the public can trace the breach back to the employee.


Is there anything that can be done to clear their names and get the truth out there?


Cheers on behalf of my mate.

He can if he wishes raise a grievance against the individual.


What is his desired outcome please? \Best to check if it is realistic before beginning. I'm also dubious about his showing internal documents to the public and thus bringing the company int disrepute; he may be about to highlight that to management... not helpful!

Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!
