RE: MED-PRIVACY digest 137

  I don't know much about the Tower situation, but, speaking in generalities . 
  . . If an employee is drunk on the job to the point where performance is 
  adversely affected, then this would normally go into a personnel file, 
  rather than a medical file.  Employers exploring job candidates' credentials 
  routinely call former employers as references--although I have no knowledge 
  of the law in this case, personnel records seem like fair game if the 
  candidate gives permission to speak to the former employer.  For jobs like 
  janitor or toll taker, an employer can afford to be a little more 
  lenient--Secetary of Defense deserves a lot more scrutiny.
