OK, so I've been incredibly frustrated in my search for a dealer recently and then by good grace came across a physician ad in the paper that says it will get everything straight as far as the legal end goes and getting your card. I called and everything, seems legit.
Anyways, I was wondering, if a job was to do a background check before hiring you, would having a card show up? I have a clean record and I would pass a drug test if I had to so I really wouldn't want this on my record and would potentially keep me away from getting a card.
Anyone know? I would think it's illegal for a background check to inquire on what medicines you are taking but this might not fall along that line.
Thanks for any help.
I'm not in CA, so forgive me if I mis-speak. I believe the Americans with disabilities act prevents employers from trying to force a person to disclose information about one's health. I would think that unless you were involved in some sort of court situation where the court subpoenad your doc and your records, that medical records are indeed private. I'm not sure how the cards work out in California. Seems to me they would be a matter of public record?
For that reason, if it were me, I would try to get a recommendation from a doctor. I would think it would still be "private" and part of your medical records? As I understand it, the recomendation is what is "legit" no matter what. I've seen a number of people say keep that and your i.d. in your wallet. Hopefully someone that has a more CA-specific experience can chime in.
