(B) Each employee performing in an adult film was tested for sexually transmitted infections, according to the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the State Department of Public Health current at the time the testing takes place, not more than 14 days prior to filming any scene in which the employee engaged in vaginal or anal intercourse, that the employee consented to disclosing to the Department of Industrial Relations that the employee was the subject of a human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) test, and that the employer paid for the test.
That’s a forced waiver of adult performers’ right to medical privacy. If you read between the lines there is NO privacy in this bill.
