Assuming that federal investigators are pursuing a report that one of your manufacturing plants has a higher-than average incidence of cancer among its employees. The plant happens to keep excellent medical records on all its employees. Stretching back for decades, which might help identify the source of the problem. The government demands the files. But if the company turns them over, it might be accused of violating the privacy of all those workers who had submitted to private medical exams. The company offers an abstract of the records, but the government insists on the complete files, with employee names. Then the company tries to obtain releases from all the workers, but some of them refuse. If you give the records to the feds, the company has broken its commitment of confidentiality. What would you do?
