Guys, this is pointless to talk about. Regardless to what the laws are, most employers will only confirm employment. They rarely, if ever, give a reason why.State law is irrelevant in the eyes of federal law. HIPAA prohibits the sharing of medical information such as disability status. What you listed in your last paragraph is subject to a fine up to one million fucking dollars not counting the civil action which has a limit of one point five million dollars.
Why do you keep harping about state law? Do you think state law ever trumps federal law? Why do you think consideration just occurs because both parties got something out of it? A contract has no consideration if it is illegal, I can pay you 50 bucks to kill my neighbor who I hate. You got 50 bucks, I got rid of my neighbor, you think consideration is present in that contract? Jesus Christ, if a contract violates the law consideration can not exist.
Why on earth do you think it’s perfectly fine for an employer to share your medical information? You can go to jail for doing that if it is determined you acted with malicious intent. People have gone to federal prison for it.
Be honest. That was you who just dropped ten bucks on Phil in my name, wasn’t it?
Remember Dave's wife from Cracker Barrel and how it became a boomer meme? It took someone lying convincingly that they were from a store to a secretary from corporate before they were able to learn why she was fired.
Besides, companies hire places now that just run background checks for other companies, then send a report back.
So honestly, both of y'all are correct. Once 3 legally and one culturally.
Love you both
