Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I do
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
But I think Nobody is able to help me despite I paid for the services
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I just want help like someone explain me how a disciplinary hearing works in general?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I understand it varies from countries to countries but I just need an overview
Expert:  Law Educator, Esq. replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for your reply.
The way this hearing will work, in general, is that the employer will present their case evidence first. This means they present the information that they received from your ex boyfriend and they would then argue as to why this information you disclosed to your boyfriend violates the employer's policy. Then once they present this evidence, you have the chance to present your witnesses and evidence in your defense.
If you cannot deny telling your boyfriend this information, you are going to have to argue that the information was not confidential and could have been obtained anywhere. You also need to argue in your defense that the information was not used against the company and that the company suffered no harm at all from this. You need to also argue that at the time there was a confidential relationship between you and your boyfriend and that the disclosure would have gone nowhere if it were not now for spite because your boyfriend is upset that you are no longer together.
This is really all you can do in this type of situation if you cannot prove and argue that you never made such a disclosure and that everything your boyfriend is saying is a lie and you do not know where he found out the information.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Alright. Thank you. Also I find this weird. In their first letter they said: Allegation of your passing personal information to external parties. And for the disciplinary hearing they say: Alleged of inappropriate use of personal information.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Then thing is that yes as per the circumstances I agreed my fault I shared that information but was not in a bad faith or bad intention.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
as a matter of fact no prejudice has been caused so far.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
But is it possible for them to change their allegation?
Expert:  Law Educator, Esq. replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for your reply.
The allegations are essentially the same, passing information to third parties is considered inappropriate use of that information, so it really is not changing allegations.
You need to defend yourself based on the fact no harm occurred though.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Fine thanks 😊
