Thank you for the post.
Your only claim would be one for defamation. There is nothing that precludes an employer for telling employees why you were terminated. For defamation the statement must be false.
Specifically, defamation consists of the following:
(1) a published statement;(2) published to third parties; and(3) which the speaker or publisher knew or should have known was false.
Even once you have these elements, you must prove damages in most cases. As a result the disclosure alone is not actionable unless it was false and there were damages.
