It might. Then again, I might go to the doctor to get treated for chronic hemorrhoids or some other embarrasing malady.
Just because the employer is incompetent and cannot motivate its workers is no excuse for it to have access to a person's private medical files. Those files are to be between a person and his/her doctor. Period.
Oh, good. It's the COMPANY'S fault! What's your incentive to go to work? Mine's a paycheck.
Companies have no business snooping in someone's medical files. Whatever happened to a bringing a note from the doc or a reciept from an office visit. In some of the companies I have worked for, if they had access to people's medical records, everything in them would be common knowledge within 24 hours due to the incurable gossips working in the office.
