After several years of hearing and seeing how people's health and personal problems are generally disclosed to others and now having had experienced my own confidential info being shared and talked about, I want to take action and try change this culture and lack of respect for privacy. Please share your experiences of this. For example fell pregnant and had to disclose this info for health and safety reasons. Not having shares this info with anyone else or having even got to the 3 month period. Having made it clear she didn't want people know yet, she then found people coming up to her to congratulate her. Unfortunately she had immediately miscarried upon informing her supervisor. I myself have sat at supergiants desks in a large office and heard them openly talking about why a member of staff was off and how she had asked for the reason not to be disclosed to others. I have several other examples of this and it seems to be really prevalent.
