Thank you for your question.

One or more. One is sufficient if it can be proved that a loss has resulted for which damages are justified.

Thanks for this - just to clarify does it need to be established that there is financial loss - or can it be reputational damage - it harming the trust in one of a group of employees?

Damages can be awarded for injury to feelings and reputation as well as any direct financial loss.
