I worked as a counselor in an agency as a supervisor and haven’t worked with them
since September 2015. An employee that I supervised has contacted me via email
to complete his hours for his counseling license. The employee is wrong in the
hours and dates/times that I supervised him. I requested that he not contact me
by email until I spoke with my licensing board. I received a certified letter
from him today and he had to get my home address from his employer my previous
employer. Can my previous employer give my address to an employee when I no
longer work for them and without my permission? Thanks for any advice.

Yes, your employer may give your address to someone else without your permission after you no longer work for them, just as a friend, acquintence, coworker, family member, neighbor, etc. can give out your address: your address is not considered private or confidential information, and anyone who knows it can give it out, unless and only if they signed some sort of confidentiality agreement to not disclose it.
