Homework Help: Business Law

Posted by Colby on Sunday, October 30, 2011 at 3:02pm.

Assume that federal health investigators are pursuing a report that one of your manufacturing plants has a higher-than-average incidence of cancer among its employees, strecthing back for the files. But if the company turns them over, it might be accused of violating the privacy of all those workers who had submitted to private medical exams. The company offers an abstract of the records, but the government insits on the company files, with employee names. Then the company tries to obtain releases from all the workers, but some of them refuse. If you give the records to the feds, the company has broken its commitment of confidentialy. What would you do?

I would not give them over, and stick to the company policy and rights
