christhelawyer : HiWelcome to JustAnswer. My first response will follow shortly. Please feel free to follow up if anything is not clear
christhelawyer : If he holds private information which is not otherwise available in the public arena, then he cannot disclose this just for the purpose of gossip or malicious spreading of the information. This offends against the Privacy Act and Principles 10 and 11.
christhelawyer : You can lodge a formal complaint to the Privacy Commissioner about what he has done and at the most extreme get an injunction to retrain him.
JACUSTOMER-9v6lu4hn- :

Thank you. I will contact the Privacy Commissioner tomorrow.
