6. Persons/entities bound by HIPAA, or "Covered Entities" as the law calls them..

are generally related to provision of health related services:

- Health Care Providers
- Health Insurance Plans
- Health Care Data Clearinghouses

(https://www.hhs.gov/hipaa/for-professionals/covered-entities/index.html)

So, it's not likely that HIPAA was the reason that HR didn't provide the information to the rest of you. Also, the employee simply told HR about the situation: it didn't come from improper access to confidential records of any kind.

I'd be seriously pissed off at both of them.
