ANNOGSEXOCA : For confidentiality to be breach there needs to be an agreement between both parties agreeing to it, or it's matter of law that such confidentiality is not to be breached.

The compensation varies because the damages are not always the same.

Oxymnlync : It really depends on what confidentiality is broken. If you entrust your friend with sensitive information and he/she breaches the confidentiality and shares it with others, you might lose trust and respect for that friend but not much more could happen.

If, on the other hand, you are a doctor or lawyer and you breach confidentiality, you open yourself up to lawsuits and possible jail time.

In the medical profession, all employees in a practice are required to uphold the patients' privacy as per the HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) Act and they could face steep fines and go to jail for breaking HIPAA laws.

I hope that this helps.

Alibabamen : She no longer works for the company, she quit a few months ago. I had to work with her for roughly 5 more years before she quit. I was recently fired for something that was not my doing and I feel I have been treated unfairly by being let go and she was not for threatning bodily harm on me

srfecti644 : sue who for what? Do you have a contract that requires the employer to treat you fairly? Is the reason for someone getting fired harmful to you in some way?

Sleeryrub : She did it 5 yrs ago? No, you cannot sue, don't be ridiculous. If you had felt threatened and had quit, you could have sued for loss of wages, but since you accepted it, you have no complaint.

In the US, you work at will, which means your employer can fire you at any time for little or no reason at all.

HXfernanda : You worked there for five more years? WHY?
If you felt you were in a dangerous workplace, you should have brought this up with police at the time. By staying there, you agreed that it was not, by your actions, and therefore no one is going entertain a complaint.

As to your recent firing, it depends upon the situation surrounding that, but it is separate from the other incident - both you and your employer had too much water under the bridge.

Bocaaeropip : 5 years ago this happened and now you want to take action about it.

In my opinion -- just an opinion -- the very long wait, with action finally being taken right on the heels of being fired by the company, make the odds of this being taken seriously in court dubious at best.

crfmnkhufemq : Five years? Even if you had a case five years ago (unlikely) its gone with the wind now.
