What are my rights if my employer did not disclose the medical history of patient who I cared for who has now possibly exposed me to a communicable disease?
Question Details: I was hired last week as a caregiver and the company for my first client failed to disclose that a client had been treated for a communicable disease and possibly exposed me to this disease. I asked my supervisor regarding this matter the following day, because I had a night shift and was not able to reach her prior and she stated she was unaware and called her supervisor. She called me back stating that her supervisor knew but that I was not at liberty to know such information. The client has been treated but can still be a carrier. I now have to be tested. Did they act negligently? What can I do now?
