During an investigation the investigator was investigating bullying by 2 employees, however only one of the witnesses the employee alleged discriminated against the employee for direct discrimination. The investigator copied the one that did not know the employee had a mental health condition details of the claim against the other employee - this employee learnt from the investigator that the employee who made a complaint against them for bullying had mental health issue.
