That is F'D UP. He should tell his (ex-)boss that the charges made against him would never stand up in court, due to the lack of any confidentiality contract, and if HoMoCo didn't want any "leakage" of information, it's their own damn fault. The only possible way they could win the suit is by saying that they were trespassing - and they weren't anyway.
But what's so wrong about telling people that you've SEEN the next generation Accord? All you saw was what it looked like from the outside. It's sort of like telling people you've *seen* the cover to the new Harry Potter book - you haven't read the book, so you can't tell people the plot.
And Sawg, to reiterate, this guy HADN'T seen something he wasn't supposed to see. There was no confidentiality contract.
Even if there had been nondisclosure agreements, it is extremely illegal for Honda to tell another company to fire an employee. Honda could sue that employee, or sue that company, but telling that company to fire the employee is definitely ot one of the legal options.
I'm not a lawyer, so this is based on my limited law knowledge. You can stick the words "I'm fairly sure" in front of ever sentence.
