Disclosure question

An employer is also a healthcare provider and provides services to its workforce members through an employee clinic. If one member of the employer’s workforce is evaluated in the clinic and the doctors discover a non-work-related illness such as tuberculosis, may the clinic disclose the individual’s protected health information to the employer without the authorization of the patient?
