My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: TX
I was working for a nationally known bank for almost 5 years. Since I was also a customer at the bank, once I left I expected my privacy to be respected just as any other customer.
So that my story makes sense, I have to say that a lady (non-bank customer) came in one day to cash a check, but we started talking about why she was cashing the checks. (She makes handmade scarves.) I asked that she come back on payday so I could get one for a Mother's Day gift, but she told me to hang on to the scarf and she would come back for payment. By the time the next payday rolled around, I had already left.
I am fully aware that I owe her the money, however, I was not aware that my former employer could just give out my information (remember, unpublished) to just anyone. I would have lost my job if I had given out customer information to anyone else!
Is this considered acceptable or is there anything I can do about it?
