Our expert says:
At 26 a person is legally an adult, and a parent has no legal right to sneak around for privileged information about them. Information someone shares with their doctor should be kept strictly confidential except in some rate and special circumstances. And a boss must keep to the usual rules and laws regarding how workers can be treated ( the Dept of Labour should be able to advise here ), and that does not include snitching information from a worker's mother and using it against that worker. If a mental or any other illness exiss but is not affecting the person's work performance, it is none of the boss's business. And if one has a job, and develops ANY illness which might reduce your performance, these are not grounds for dismissal or problems, fbut the employer should ehlp the person to get whatever treatment they might beed.
Maybe some advice from a labour lawyer would be useful. And if you do have some illness, even if you were managing fine until now, why not get more expert advice and treatment or your own benefit ? Don't let the fact that your mum may have used under-hand mwethods to try to force you towards treatment, prevent you from getting proper treatment which you deserve and need anyway
