    Default Information Release Waiver And Medical Record Privacy

    Hi,

    I recently began a job that required me to sign an information release waiver. The form said I give permission to (employer) to check my references and by so doing hereby release to (employer) any requested information regarding my professional and personal credentials, and physical condition.
    My question is about the physical condition part. Does that give them access to my medical records? This waiver doesnt seem like it would qualify as a HIPAA form. If not, why would they have included that? Does it just mean they can ask my references if I physicall am capable of performing my job?
    Thanks!

    No, that's not going to release your medical records. It will allow a previous employer to give information about any limitations you may have had in previous jobs.
