Breach of Confidentiality
I was recently asked to resign from a position as a church secretary due to internet abuse. I did so without question and accepted responsibility for my actions. I was asked to resign by the pastor of the church as well as the current and future chairpersons of the Pastor/Parish Relations Committee. Both the pastor and the committee heads assured and reassured me the reason for my resignation would be held in strict confidence and not known by anyone outside the room we were in at the time. This was just a verbal assurance. Since then the pastor has taken it upon himself to tell several people within the congregation as well as tell the entire Pastor/Parish Relations Committee. Now the committee members are telling members of the congregation as well. Would this be considered Breach of Confidentiality? Would I have a case against the pastor and possibly the regional conference for which he is a member? Please advise.
