Employer's HIPAA Privacy and Security Responsibilities

OnDemand Webinar (90 minutes)

Protect your company by making sure you are up to date with HIPAA's latest mandates for privacy and security laws in the workplace.In the COVID-19 era, employers need medical information to protect the health of their employees, but fear that the HIPAA privacy rule may limit their ability to acquire and use such information. This topic will explain why HIPAA need not stand in the way of employer access to the information they need to make informed decisions about operating their businesses. It will describe the measures employers should implement to safeguard HIPAA protected information while still having access to the information needed to safeguard employee health. There will also be a discussion of other medical privacy laws that employers must be aware of.
