Advanced Upstream Ltd.

On April 9, 2019, the Organization?s legal counsel sent a letter to a third party organization advising that the affected individual owed certain contractual confidentiality and non-competition obligations to the Organization by virtue of his prior employment. A similar letter was sent to the affected individual to remind him of the confidentiality and noncompetition obligations that he owed to the Organization. The affected individual advised the Organization that the disclosure of his employment agreement was a breach of privacy. The Organization disagreed with the affected individual?s position, but advised the third-party organization to destroy the employment agreement to prevent any potential harm to the affected individual. The third-party organization destroyed the document shortly thereafter. The affected individual submitted a complaint to my office about this matter. The Organization subsequently reported the incident to my office under section 34.1 of PIPA.
