Health Privacy Violations
Minnesota Privacy Laws
Have you ever wondered what your privacy rights are? In Minnesota, privacy laws relating to health care are some of the most patient protective in our country. It provides more protection for patients than the Federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
As an employee whose HIPAA rights have been violated, the act actually does not allow you to bring forth charges on the entity who committed the violation. You may be wondering what the point of the law is if a violation of it does not yield some kind of consequence.
If someone has violated your rights, the Minnesota Health Records Act allows you to not only recover compensation for the damages caused, but ensures that the culpable party pays all your attorney fees and costs of bringing the lawsuit. Employers often violate this act under suspicion that a condition may in the future inhibit your ability to perform the job, but they do not have a right to this information, and there should be no concern as long as you are performing at or above the desired level for the position.
You have a right to privacy and we intend to help you enforce it.
