It's not a crime. If might be a HIPPA violation. Moreover, it MAY be a civil wrong under Georgia law, including invasion of privacy.

However, it's very difficult to continue to work someplace and sue them. Therefore, you may want to consider if its worth it. I have handled cases like this previously in Georgia.
