privacy breached
#6
yes california is much stricter on what patient information the employer is entitled to.
they do allow the doctor and carrier to inform the employer about work restrictions, diagnosis, and return to work dates.
details concerning medical history, concurrent conditions, treatment plans, tests, etc. is not disclosable.

If you believe there was a breach you should put your objection in writing to the carrier, employer, and doctor.
you are entitled to be treated by any doctor within the carriers MPN and can inform them of if/when you change.
Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
THANKS FOR POSTING.
