In order to have an effective ADA Program, it is critical that confidentiality be maintained. Therefore, participants in the program should be confident that the ADA Program information will be maintained in strict accordance with statutory and contractual protection against unauthorized access.
- All records of employee involvement in the ADA Program will be guarded in the strictest confidential manner permitted by law.
- ADA Office shall not release records without written authorization of the employee concerned. Such records will be handled in the same confidential manner as other medical and hospital records are handled.
- The ADA Office will be operated in a manner to insure the appropriate confidentiality of persons who refer themselves to the program.
- Confidentiality is maintained unless prohibited by law, e.g., a person is a danger to self or others, or involved with child abuse.
