A WOMAN who disclosed personal information about foreign workers who her employers supplied to other firms has been fined £250.

Nicola Read, 31, of Fryslea, Dibden Purlieu, admitted breaching the Data Protection Act while working for Totton and Gosport-based Green Personnel.

Peter Spink, prosecuting at Southampton Crown Court, said Read virtually ran the business while a director took “a back seat”.

After she suddenly resigned in October after ten years with the firm, the owner came into the office and discovered a number of files were missing.

Read later admitted she had disclosed to another company the names and phone numbers of people supplied by her former employers.
