Customer Question
If an employer sent...

If an employer sent an email and mention medication you are on and there is a chance that other could see email to find out I’m on medication. Is that violation of privacy.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Illinois

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

I was full time. I was having some problems with side effects the mess were giving me my supervisor was aware of this and when see sent me the email I was so upset of wanted to quit but asked then to put me on layoff which they did but I do not want to go back due to email

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I had worked at company for 21 years and if they would have support & understanding I would have gotten the side effect over I had only been on this new dosage for 2 weeks. It was seizure medication
