Thank you for using JustAnswer!
I am sorry to learn of your circumstances.
As a general matter, the patient privacy protections of HIPAA do not apply to employers.
So, there would not be any legal recourse through that federal law.
To the extent that there would be any cause of action, it would be through the more traditional invasion of privacy claim.
It can really depend upon the specific facts/circumstances of your situation (which I do not expect you to detail in this public thread).
Good luck and best wishes for better days ahead.
I hope that you find this information to be helpful and this answer to be ACCEPTable!
