    Compensation for breach of privacy in the Workplace


    How to win compensation for breach of privacy in the workplace

    Imagine if you had worked in an office for years and had worked hard to get the respect of the other members of staff. You then start having a problem with your bowels and you are in tremendous pain every time you go to the lavatory. The constant strain causes haemorrhoids which are so painful that you have problems sitting down.

    As a private person and also being older than many other members of staff, you find this embarrassing. In fact, you will go any lengths to hide your problem. You have to confide in your manager because of the time taken off work to go into hospital for an operation. You have been given a promise that the reason for your absence will be treated with the utmost confidentiality.

    Everyone is laughing behind your back

    Upon your return to work, you keep getting snide comments and giggles about you having ‘piles’ of work to do on your return. Everyone goes silent when you enter the room and they all appear to be holding in their laughter. You later find a circulated email from your manager announcing your operation in a manner of hilarity. You are so embarrassed that you feel as if you can no longer continue to face the other members of staff. You become clinically depressed and want to leave your job. In a situation like this, you might want to think about getting compensation for breach of privacy in the workplace.

    First of all, you should ring Accident Advice Helpline. We are a law firm dedicated to personal injury compensation.
