I resigned from a previous work employment partly due to constant annoyance from others due to a relationship with a coworker. I started a business and soon overheard the neighbours talking about this which caused me a lot of discomfort. The neighbours would laugh and joke to all their customers. I don't know who told them about my past. After discussing with another neighbour, he said, if I approached them, they would simply deny knowledge of this. I moved my business elsewhere and am experiencing the same problem. The neighbours are telling everyone in the centre about my past. I don't know who is behind spreading information about my past and don't know how I should put a stop to it under Australian law.
