New Hampshire provides healthcare facilities with immunity when disclosing employment information
Tags : Enacted Legislation
New Hampshire recently enacted a law (Ch. 284 of 2016) that provides licensed healthcare provider facilities with immunity from civil liability when disclosing, in good faith, employment information regarding the misconduct and competency of a healthcare worker upon request of a prospective or current employer.
Specifically, the law states:
- “Any facility licensed under this chapter shall, when acting in good faith, disclose employment information regarding misconduct and competency about a health care worker upon request of a prospective or current employer. A facility and its directors and employees who provide information in accordance with this section shall be immune from civil liability for providing the information or for any consequences that result from the disclosure of the information unless it is alleged and proven that the information disclosed was false and disclosed with knowledge that such information was false.”
The law is effective on Jan. 1, 2017.
