I'm not sure if, and in what measure, Google is breaking any privacy laws.
What I do know is that the contractor is breaking some contractual agreements and probably also some privacy laws.
I can only assume that his contracting days are over and if it were up to me he'd do some jail time and pay a hefty fine for intentionally sharing confidential and private data.
I'm not even sure what this idiot tried to get out of it because it was apparently already known that humans listen to audio recordings (although it's now more widely known).
If this were a small company it could ruin them, the fact that it's Google should not matter in that regard.
I get that Google is angry, and I would be too.
For once, I'm on Google's side.
