The Firehouse Lawyer Newsletter

Results for newsletters with the topic “HIPAA” and the subtopic “General Issues

Today we discuss what constitutes “adverse action” under Title VII, in the context of retaliation claims; a new law addressing the response standards for “substantially career” fire departments; RCW 70.160, which relates to smoking indoors, and policies of fire departments that may be required to comply with that law; and general issues with releasing medical records under HIPAA. 06-0120061v06n01jan2006.pdf
Because the wildfire season is essentially here, we thought it would be appropriate to discuss "abatement" costs and whether certain fire departments may recoup those costs; furthermore, we consider HIPAA, legislative changes pertaining to piggybacking, the "buddy system" under the safety regulations, a case involving the public disclosure rules, off-duty misconduct, and affirmative action. 17-0520195May2019FINAL.pdf
