Long story short-
I recently had a job interview with a local large chain company. The entire screening/interview process was 1-1 PRIVATE, and confidential in nature as it should be ( So i thought ). I was recently approached by an employee of the company (Cashier, 3rd party) who informed me they inquired to the manager about my status on being hired,... and the manager in question who conducted my interview decided to go ahead and disclose ALL MATERIALS related to my interview, ie, Questions/Responses, comments & discussions. Just very,... sensitive and harmful information. To add insult to injury, the tone was negative. I know i interview nervously, but that's no excuse. My reputation is ruined. I've already experienced some backlash from his breach of confidentiality as an interviewer.Strategic/Realistic Attorneys, need only respond... I'm looking for answers on what CAN be accomplished without pushing the luck of getting absolutely no resolution/rectification. Realistic attorneys and ones that make names for themselves aren't ones that see a "In-actionable Claim" as a closed door. Make action not Lame ass answers.
Aside from your SSN, PII etc., I am unaware of any interviewer-interviewer duty of confidentiality in any state (I am not a GA attorney). Its certainly unprofessional, but I doubt you have any legal options as it does not appear any duty was breached.
NOT LEGAL ADVICE. FOR EDUCATION AND INFORMATION ONLY. DO NOT RELY ON ANY ADVICE YOU RECEIVE FROM ME OR ANY OTHER ATTORNEY IN THIS FORUM. Legal advice comes after a complete review of the facts and relevant documents and an expressed (written) agreement of representation that forms attorney-client confidentiality. Neither of these two events can occur in this forum. Mr. Rafter is licensed to practice in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the US Federal Courts in Virginia. His answers to any Avvo question are rooted in general legal principles--NOT your specific state laws. There is no implied or actual attorney-client relationship arising from this education exchange. You should speak with an attorney licensed in your state, to whom you have provided all the facts before you take steps that may impact your legal rights. Mr. Rafter is under no obligation to answer subsequent emails or phone calls related to this or any other matter.
The company does not owe you a duty of confidentiality. I'm afraid you do not have an actionable claim.
