Would I be test blood pressure in a pre-employment drug test?

Are you wondering if a prospective employer can test you for prescription drugs like BP medicine without your knowledge? The answer is no and if you were tested for those drugs you have grounds for a nice juicy lawsuit. An employer CAN give you a physical, but not without your consent.

Is it a crime for a company to share your private information with another company?

Unfortunately no. I thought it was. Your private information is for the use of your current employer only and is therefore confidential. And as we all know, confidential information is NOT to be given to anyone or any other business. So, in other words, yes it is illegal for a company to give another company your confidential information, because for all they (they being the info giver being your employer) know the "other" company could be a fraudulent company that wants that info for their own personal gains (in other words, ID Thieves). That depends on what grounds we are discussing the issue at. If you owe a company money, then they may share this information with anyone interested in lending you money or providing you housing or employment. Your payment history is also readily available. When a prospective employer calls your employer for job verification, they may ask anything they wish. The current employer may tell the prospective employer anything that is truthful UNLESS you have specifically instructed them not to. There are some issues that are not legally transferable without your consent. Health information is one example. HIPAA laws prevent this. Social security information can be transferred if the information is required to preform work. My company, for example, transfers your social security information to a payroll service to issue your check. It would not be legal for this information to be transferred to my bank or other company that does not need to use this information to preform work for my company. I could not give the local hospital this information as an example. The local Hospital could not tell me about your health without your consent.
