Do Employers Have The Right To Violate HIPAA Medical Privacy Laws?



  1. I spent 30 years as a Teamster Truck driver. Half of the time as a shop steward of a tank haul company. No one had assigned trucks as they would be sent out with a new driver if no write-ups for service occurred. No one has an assigned truck but me. I got the junk of the fleet. Every day I would write it up as having a defect in the steering and every day it would be signed off as no defect found by the service manager. This went on for over a month until I asked for a meeting with the Terminal manager, the service manager and the dispatchers. I told them that I had been writing up the tractor for defective steering and that they continued to ignore it. I told them that my next door neighbor was an attorney and I had a meeting with him and my wife and they were informed of the problems with the tractor. I also told them that in case something happened to me while driving they were going to included, personally, in the lawsuit my wife would file in the event of my death.
    The tractor disappeared that same day.

  2. People are getting smarter nowadays; they are letting lawyers, instead of their conscience, be their guide.
