    Rumors About My Health

    HIPAA protects health information obtained in the administration of a health care plan, so if self insured, HR *may* have HIPAA protected information. ADA also has a privacy provision but it is not as broad as you are describing and it doesn't appear to apply here as no accommodation or disability information has been sought or shared.

    The filing fee in Small Claims depends on the amount you wish to recover. Filing fees are as follows:$31.00 if you are suing for $ .01 to $500.00, and $55.00 if you are suing for $500.01 to$7,500.00. Where did the $200 TO $300 figures come from?

    What law would that be? It wouldn't be HIPAA since that only applies to medical practitioners and has no provision for penalties. So, what law are you referring to?

    Rumors About My Health

    Presumably there have been other instances at work as one situation a few months ago would be long forgotten if that were it. Asking everyone to overlook and ignore your symptoms is unreasonable. Better to have some sort of polite but brief script when something happens. Most will understand if you explain you are under the care of a doctor but are still fully capable of working and would appreciate it if they would respect your privacy as you work toward a diagnosis and treatment.

    Undisclosed Short-term employment

    Government contracts are public record. You could just as easily looked up for yourself when the contract was set to expire and made your decision. The employer didn't have to tell you information which was readily available to the public. They just as easily could have won the bid. Its a gamble you take anytime you work on grant or contract funded projects.

    Rumors About My Health

    You can't logically expect people not notice or be concerned. Human nature is what it is, after all.

    Rumors About My Health

    If someone is having health issues that are affecting or may affect his/her performance, then there is absolutely nothing wrong with management discussing those issues. To the extent information from the person's co-workers may be relevant, there's nothing wrong with management discussing things with non-management personnel.
