Act 54 of 2020 allows health systems to omit the last names of employees from workplace photo identification badges worn by medical professionals.
State Sen. Kristen Phillips-Hill, who authored Senate Bill 842, said, “In the era of social media, the last name of an employee can provide a malicious individual with information needed to stalk, harass and threaten medical professionals. This new law will provide for added protections for the individuals who work to keep our communities healthy.”
The Act is effective August 31.
