Is there a confidentiality agreement in place?

Unless there is a confidentiality agreement in place, the supervisor "may" tell another employee why you were fired. The question would be, however, whether that employee had a business-related need to know that information and whether the information conveyed was truthful. Generally, supervisors telling other employees why someone was terminated is considered a bad HR practice and is discouraged by employment lawyers.
