I placed a booking for flights on hold through a travel agent. One of the staff in the office knew my boss. The member of staff saw the booking and contacted my Boss to ask if they knew I had booked the flights. I hadn't asked for the time off work and had only placed the flight booking on hold until I confirmed the dates. My Boss was not happy and believed I had booked the flights without approval for time off, this lead to a complete break down in trust and eventually I left the company. The travel agents have agreed that my confidentiality has been breached and offered me $1,000. I have two questions: - What area of Law does this breach of confidentiality fall under? - What kind of compensation would be normal for a case like this, should I accept $1,000? Thanks for your help.
