I was hoping they would not go this route, but they sent out an email saying vaccinated people do not need masks, and the dirty unvaccinated must wear masks. They expect us to use the honor system, but there is an abuse hotline set up to report people not wearing the yellow star, oops I mean mask If you don’t have the right papers. They insisted they have the right to ask for proof. I guess I should learn how to fake the vaccine card officially now. I’m just grateful I live in Florida and the majority of the folks are over the mask and probably won’t report me, but we’re nationwide company and there’s a lot of mask Nazis out there.

That’s not even remotely how HIPAA works.

Its a byproduct of all medical records being the private information of the patient. PII can only be shared with the patients consent.

When you ask a candidate if they have mental health issues, and they say no, you cant then demand their psychotherapy notes from them. They can ask, but they cannot demand you show them PII.

Look up covered entities when you get a chance. Unless you’re working in the health field, HIPAA almost certainly does not apply to your employer.

My blue state governmental health agency I work for is not asking for proof for a reason.
