Hi,

My name is ***** ***** I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
There unfortunately isn't any specific right to privacy in employment. There's no statute that applies to this scenario, and medical privacy laws only apply to medical providers and insurance companies. What you can do is talk to the HR Department or your immediate supervisor about your concerns, and about implementing a policy to protect sensitive employee information.
Please rate my answer positively to ensure I get credit for the time I spend helping. If you are on a mobile device, you may need to scroll to the right. Thank you.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
