    Default Employer Giving Out a Copy of My I.D. Card

    My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: British Columbia, Canada
    My former employer is threatening to give a copy of my government issued photo identification card to other employers in our field if I don't give her a certain website I was using. If she does this A- can I do something about it and B- Is it illegal?
    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    If you get people shouting "US Law only!!!" ignore them - I am Canadian and can provide you with Canadian legal information.

    That said, I need the answers to some questions before I can proceed:
    1. What is this "government-issued ID card" you speak of? Is it a driver's license? A health card? Why does your employer have it?
    2. What is the website you were viewing and why is your employer so interested in it? Were you viewing during working hours and/or on your employer's computer?

    Please answer these questions and then I will try and answer your questions.

    The law in the US and Canada is not the same, and this is primarily a US website. We have one member who knows Canadian employment law and I'm sure she will respond if she happens by. But you may have a bit of a wait as she does not post here often; you might want to try here:

    I did respond several hours ago - see above. I'm just waiting for OP's answers to my questions.
