Customer Question
I had a Juvenile record...
I had a Juvenile record sealed 25 years ago. Although I was required to disclose my juvenile record to my employers during my background investigation, I have never shared it with any of my coworkers. Recently, my booking photo was discovered in storage by coworkers and shared with other coworkers for their amusement. What recourse should I take, if any?
