Default Do i lose Confidentiality

Ladies and Gents i have a question.

If i am employed in a company and i disclose to 6 people or so within the staff of my HIV status. Can i then later charge accuse any of these people of violating my confidentiality. If find that three of them have told other people can i accuse them of breaching my confidentiality?

Do i enjoy confidentiality without boundaries or does confidentialityt seize to being once i excerice the right to disclose to the so many people.

The next question if three people disclosed can i thus choose on the basis of like who i am going to sue and the other ones just forgive?

As long as you had not restricted them not to told your personal matters to others there is no matter of violation of confidentiality.

Very few people are required by law to maintain your confidentiality in the US. They are mostly medical professionals. If you tell a random co-worker they’re under no requirement to keep it to themselves - even if you asked.

Two people can keep a secret if one of them is dead.

Telling anybody your secret (no matter how few or how many) is the same as shouting it from the rooftops no matter what you tell them about keeping a confidence.

Admitting HIV to co-workers or bosses was really a dumb idea.
