My wife worked at a methadone clinic in one town. Her Boss filled in at a clinic in another town and discovered that I was previously a patient there and showed them some kind of proof. No one...including my wife knew of my treatment so it in no way affected her work. She was there close to 5 years and had excellent reviews. Recenly she went to an as needed status and filled in at the clinic. When her Boss found out I had been a client he stated to all her co-workers that she was no longer allowed in the clinic and proceeded to tell them that I was a methadone patient. Not only did she lose her job but so did her 2 friends who were also as needed and now work iwth her at her new job. He has been spreading this around to her freinds/coworkers and incinuating that since I was a patient that she was the person responsible for taking money and drugs from the clinic in the past. It is damaging her reputation, she lost her job, and freinds because he violated my right to privacy about my treatment. Now my wife and children know and it is damaging my family. I want to be sure this doesnt happen to anyone else but dont know how to sue him for this. My treatment had nothing to do with my wifes employment or with her co-workers so they had no need to know. Her boss had been angry when she left and we feel that his is just a milicious way of getting back at her. There is no other reason to share this information with her co-workers and friends. If he felt it would affect her employment he could have just talked to her, which still would have violated my right to privacy but would have been less damaging to her reputation as a nurse of 16+ years who had never had a blemish on her work history.
