While managers may not typically have access to specific employee medical information, situations can arise where an employee shares this information, like when requesting leave or an accommodation. This information must be protected, both to comply with laws and to maintain employee trust.

Employee Medical Privacy is designed for organizations not covered under HIPAA. It gives managers the tools to handle employee medical information safely and effectively in accordance with their organization’s policies and the law.
