California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
I will be working for a large commercial and government contractor who is running a background. I was admitted as a 5150 but NOT put on a 72 hour hold. They evaluated me and let me go right away. I was there appx 15 hours but 14 hours was waiting for someone to evaluate me. I know HIPPA laws prevent this but as this is a government contractor, I do not know if they will have additional access to my private medical records. I did several online backgrounds and nothing came up but I want to be certain.
Just a standard background. I will not be working on any cleared projects so no clearance is required.
