Well, the UAW really dropped the ball on this one.

I have to agree with you. I work in health care and have expert experience with patient confidentiality, HIPAA, union negotiations, medical claims and employee benefits. Employers have NO right to access employee (and their family member) medical records. They should enforce their existing policies for approved absences. There is no need to request medical records which are filled with personal details that are not relevant to what is an excused medical absence. The union really screwed this up. If I had chronic jock itch, as well as some other medical condition, would I want my benefit clerk at work to know about it?,
