HIV IN THE WORK PLACE
Nov 17, 2000

WHY SHOULD I TELL MY BOSS I HAVE HIV

Response from Mr. Shernoff

There is not a reason in the world why you SHOULD tell anyone other than sex partners that you have HIV. If you are not having medical problems that necessitate your work place making accommodations for you as per the Americans With Disabilities Act, I can't think of any reason why you would want to tell your boss about a private medical condition. It seems to be unnecessarily asking for potential trouble.

Michael Shernoff, MSW
