Customer Question

I went on vacation with my friend who is also a vendor that we do business with. Someone reported to Human Resources that I was on vacation with this vendor and there is an investigation under way. We do a lot of sales with this vendor and the person who reported me apparently called the hotel to confirm we were both there and is claiming vendor bias. I have two questions - can the employee who called the hotel get in trouble for invasion of my privacy? Could my company call the hotel and ask if I stayed there if there is an investigation underway?

If I may ask you a different question, can it be a policy violation for me to go on vacation with a vendor that I do business with?
