My fiance' was recently terminated from his job. Upon his termination, the manager of the branch shared his termination status with other employees as well as provided a written flyer indicating the same thing to be placed in an employee area. He shared this information to keep my fiance' from returning to the facility. I feel that is a violation of my fiance' privacy for that information to be offered so freely since my fiancé was not threatening or hostile when informed of his termination. That brings up another issue. The flyer indicated that my fiance' was terminated and is not allowed on the facilities' grounds and the manager is to be called. No legal order was in place barring him from the facility. Is that legal as well? This facility is a public facility.
I'm sure this is a difficult time for the two of you. Unfortunately, it is not illegal for an employer to inform their employers that someone has been terminated. It is also common for employers to trespass former employees, i.e., they are not permitted to return onto the premises. It is necessary to alert other employees of the trespass so they can report to management if the employee comes on the property. Of course this is all rather a bad situation for your finance but the employer hasn't violated any laws. You may want to consult a local labor attorney in your area. You will find one here on AVVO.
All the best.
