Okay, I'll keep this as short as possible.
I have a friend who has been on paid leave from his job for a variety of reasons. He was not fired because there are labor issues involved: He requested Sundays off to attend religious services and at first they said no. When he cited the legal labor code for the state they had to give him the time off, but in turn they gave him a really bad, grueling schedule. He now has the Human Relations Commission on his case.
In order for management to get the heat off of them, they turned their mistake into an issue of his "threatening" behavior. Well, this is poppycock, because management knew they messed up. he went to a hearing a few weeks ago, and all those involved in his case were there.
My question is: Are the hearings supposed to be confidential? In other words, one of the manager's who had turned the story around to make it about his behavior has begun blabbing around the work environment. Bad form is what I say, but I am wondering are there any legal consequences to her blabbing?
Maybe it's time to find a new job.
