My payroll allocation/information was leaked and shared internally. Naturally, I am furious over this and undoubtedly there will be fallout. I am seeking your input as to whether or not there are any legal consequences my company is facing for leaking this confidential information.

- Do you have a provision in your contract that prohibits Your Employer from disclosing your salary?
- Are their laws in your area that would prohibit your employer from disclosing your salary?
- Has the leaking of your salary caused actual damages?
If the answer to all 3 of those are no, then your answer is probably no.
If the answer to even one of these yes then you should take all the documentation you have relating to this incident to a lawyer and get their opinion.
