Default Can I sue for damages under data protection act?

I bought some generic Viagra online for myself and sold some to my friends as I had no money. The police and medicines board found out and went to my job to search my locker. They found nothing. I work in a quality control lab in a pharmaceutical company. My manager announced to 50 of my fellow colleagues that I had been arrested for possession with intent to supply prescription drugs.This is factually incorrect as I've not been arrested or charged. I've admitted to my employer that I sold some of the excess Viagra to friends. Has my manager violated my privacy a regards my personal information and an I sue for damages as I've not been arrested only questioned?

Default Re: Can I sue for damages under data protection act

I wish to inform you that as no evidence has been found against you and as you have not been charged therefore wrong and incorrect statements have been given against you. In this regard a suit for defamation can be filed against other person. You can claim compensation for loss of your reputation.
