Your boss may have done something wrong. If your boss lied and said that he was you for example, then that is unlawful.
But if your boss simply asked for this information and it was given then the internet provider is the one you have to go after for damages.
They caused you harm by releasing confidential information which was in breach of your user agreement with them and this caused repercussions that harmed you.
So you can retain a lawyer to send them a letter demanding compensation by a deadline that you set and threatening a lawsuit.
I do think it's worth getting the assistance of a lawyer because the Internet provider will not ignore a letter from a lawyer.
The Internet provider can defend itself by telling you that the employer lied to them and then you will know what you can do next.
But if you lost your job because of this then the damages were not nominal and I though that is what happened?
That is nonsense but if you are saying you were not dismissed because of this infringement of privacy then you didn't suffer damages.
You can report the internet provider to your provinces privacy commissioner.
I did understand the facts but I thought that he was using them after the fact to bolster his case of wrongful dismissal but I don't see that is what happened now.
So if there are no damages there are not a court can order.
