Our Pennsylvania Privacy Lawyers know the law and can fight for your rights. If you have experienced a violation of your privacy rights, whether at work such as under the Americans with Disabilities Act or the Family Medical Leave Act, then Donham Law will assist you in evaluating your rights and managing a case against your employer if the matter is serious enough. A serious workplace privacy violation can be related to the unauthorized disclosure of an illness or disability that the employer permitted other individuals, without a need to know, to learn of through the unauthorized disclosure. Additionally, sometimes there are very personal health issues that you may not want others to know about and if the employer makes these health issues known, you may have a claim against your employer. In many cases, employers do not keep medical or health records and files separate from your employment file. This may be a violation of your rights. Additionally, the law does not permit an employer to tell other employees such as co-workers or even some other types of supervisors about your health or disability issues, if they do not have a need to know. If this occurs, you may have rights under HIPAA as well as rights under other laws such as the ADA or state laws.Can My Employer Look at My Personal Cell Phone or Private Information at Work?
An employer is not permitted under law to view your personal cell phone or its contents unless the phone or a computer is purchased or provided to you by the employer. Even in those cases, however, the employer may not be permitted to invade your privacy in certain instances. This is why it is important to contact a Pennsylvania and West Virginia Privacy lawyer for more information on what is permissible and what is not permissible. You may have rights and damages under various laws in Pennsylvania or West Virginia that protect you from violations of your rights.You Have a Right to Privacy!
Our West Virginia Privacy lawyers understand how to deal with privacy violations. Sometimes individuals have their private health information given to others such as when a physician or therapist gives out private information about you which is of a serious nature such as abortion, sexually transmitted disease, drug dependency or other matters of private concern. This is what many refer to as a serious HIPAA violation. HIPAA means the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. What this Act forbids is the unlawful disclosure of one’s private medical information. This happens when you did not give consent for the information to be given to others or the public, or perhaps when you sign a HIPAA Compliant Release and only designate a certain type of medical information transfer and the physician’s office or other non-compliant entity releases more information than you authorized. If this happens to you then you can seek a remedy under various state laws for the negligence and carelessness of the one tasked with protecting your records.
