Few companies are willing to reveal negative details about employees, ex or current or future. The courts are unpredictable and can go any direction regardless of the culpability of the employee - ex or otherwise.
Banks are more conservative with respect to legal exposure.

if you were running a company, would you want your employee to do this? or would you like them to bring it to your attention first? -- and if you think she did bring it to the top management, and top management told her to shut her mouth and go back to her cubicle, then maybe you as a voting share person should inquire within the company -- after all, you own the crap, you have rights, and you have rights to sell it if you do not get cooperation
