What to do when an employer violates the HIPAA law?

Question Details:

My husband recently had a physical for the fire dept he is in; his hearing came into question. He wore hearing aids prior to being hired and it has never been an issue until this. He is very self-conscious of this and wanted no one to know, but today, another firefighter came up to him and asked, "So, you can't get on the part-time side because of your ears?" Obviously, the supervisors have been spreading the word of my husband's medical history. What can be done?
