Respecting the confidentiality of an employment tribunal

The challenge: A large corporate client wanted to stop public online discussions amongst its employees regarding an ongoing employment tribunal case.

What we did: An in-depth report was conducted to establish what information had been published and where as well as uncovering the identities of the employees. Once in possession of this information, the client was able to take measured internal steps to prevent further disclosure in addition to ensuring the removal of the confidential information.

The result: The confidential information was contained. The disclosure made it apparent that we needed to conduct immediate employee training and update the internal company guidelines on how to act online in order to prevent future unintentional reputational threats from within the company itself.
