You don't have to offer any explanation. More practically, you could say "medical reasons" and decline to answer any further questions. Legally, assuming you live in the US (given that you mentioned HIPAA), you cannot be questioned or disciplined for anything that could be medical/disability related. This also holds true for most developed countries in the world.

I also most likely have ASD and wear for sensory reasons too. You shouldn't worry about any issues in the workplace, as it could result in a huge lawsuit if they do anything.

This is not entirely true. If you ask for an accomodation or the company has reasonable belief a medical condition could interfere with your job they can request medical documentation. HIPAA does not protect you from being asked.

One good medical reason would be an autism diagnosis.

Thanks for letting me know. Luckily in OP's case they have a valid reason that is medically verifiable.

I think it’s valid to say you have to wear them due to stress. I think we all feel that diapers help with stress

Im lightly INC and have ibs Normally I don't need Diapers only when I travel by Public trans since there is no RR close except for a handful at stations. any way if i void some people get mad at me and I say I have 2 medical conditions and my pcp gave me a card to show people that im telling the truth that I need them don't know if your pcp might give you something to show people why you need them it doesn't hurt to ask. Best of luck!

HIPAA only applies to healthcare providers and to those with whom these Covered Entities share patient data. HIPAA doesn't keep others from asking you about an obvious diaper bulge, etc. If you share that information with a healthcare practitioner, HIPAA governs the information the practitioner maintains. HIPAA doesn't stop a coworker from sharing your secret with another coworker, which seems to be the case here.

I believe this area is a lot more gray than even I might have suspected. I know I have to sign sheets stating that I won't disclose anything I "learn" or know about kids I coach. While most teens have no medical issues to think of, you'd be surprised at how many kids I've coached in my 20+ years and at some of the issues a few have had. I never would disclose anything like that in the first place but know I'm not allowed to if I was to do so. I don't know if that is HIPPA or what, but I've signed that paper (along with a dozen others!) every single season I've coached for at least the last 15 years. I honestly can't remember IF I had to sign these when I began coaching way back in the early-mid 90s.

you really don’t need an excuse to really wear diapers in the US as there’s lots of federal and state legislation including HIPAA, ADA, etc that protects you legally from any repercussions for wearing diapers. Grante, I would not say because I can. if anyone asks or if you need to talk to hr, you can say it’s for personal reasons that I would rather not discuss. Most people in those roles will respect that and cannot do anything about it without feeling reprisal

This is commonly said and it can be true, but the following would have to happen: 1)You get fired. 2)You sue your employer for wrongful termination. 3)You have a medical professional testify that your diaper wearing is because of a medical disability. 4)You have a smoking gun email from your company that has a discussion by management that you were fired because you were wearing diapers.

Folks, your company will fire you for any reason and they can make up any reason for it that's not the real reason. You were late, you missed a deadline, your work product isn't always the best? These things get documented as they happen so they can be trotted out when they're ready to let you go for any other reason.

I don't think incontinence has to be verifiable. There are many, many people who buy incontinence products and use them having never seen a doctor. Don't overthink it. Why do you use it? "Because I need it". Simple.

You should ALWAYS create a paper trail. Request any accommodations in writing.

If you are called into a meeting ask to record it, if they say no, then take notes, and then after followup with an email…. “On xx date we met and discussed this matter and this is what happened….

Always BCC yourself. Then if you are fired you have a timeline to show that it could be retaliation which is illegal in all states.

As a very long time, 24/7, documented, U-IC, I have always discussed by urinary requirements with the HR manager of the organizations I have worked for. First for the simple honesty of my needs and as a result of working for International organizations of size, as differences between Countries and effecting laws are real. Because I am very good at what I do and I do not make a big deal about it, I have been rapidly promoted.

If you're just putting in time, doing only what is needed, you will be replaced at some point as most organizations are looking for individuals they can grow with and rely on. Diapers to not represent special requirements and present no cost to employ.

Lots of opinions above! Being honest with your employer and doing more that what is expected, plus, will make your want or need to wear a diaper a non-issue!
