When are HIPPA laws broken?
Question Details: My son went into a store that I work at. He saw a girl who worked there and thought she was cute. He's 31; she's 18. He talked to her, looked her up on facebook and they chatted. He went into the store again and talked to her. Nothing inappropriate. Then the store manager later called me into a meeting and told me that my son was no longer allowed in the store. He said the girl felt uncomfortable. It was because someone at work that ran to the girl and told her that my son was schizophrenic. It is common knowledge but did they have a right to disclose this to her?
