Former employer discloses Status
Mar 9, 2003

Ihave a former business partner who is telling future clients that I have AIDS and I am dying. (I'm HIV +) and very healthy. He is affecting my business.Is that information supposed to be confidential?

Response from Ms. Breuer

You have a former business partner who is risking being sued. Medical information is confidential. Because he is affecting your business, please contact an attorney right away. You may be able to solve this with a stern warning letter from a lawyer. For your sake, I hope so. Former business partner certainly seems to be a bottom feeder.
