Breach of confidential information given by the employer

Asked over 1 year ago - Inwood, WV

I have an ex who is determined to make me loose my job. He called them making accusations that I was using drugs. Due to random drug policy I submitted to a test. He then called them back and told them that my daughter pee'd for me. They told him they would retest and he called me that weekend to go out to dinner. The next day I was sick and called in. The following day I went in and was subjected to a 2nd test this time observed. Was it legal for them to release information about the testing to him and which allowed him the chance to drug me and make me loose my job?
