HIV positive and Unemployment
Aug 4, 2010
Im on Atripla,, and my side effects have caused me to miss work alot...can I put my notice in and collect unemployment due to this? All of my PTO and ESL have been wiped out.
Response from Dr. Frascino
Talk to your HIV specialist. He should be able to put you on temporary medical leave due to the medication side effects. That way you won't lose any of your benefits. You may not need to leave your job. Perhaps work restrictions or other measures might be considered. Don't do anything without consultation with of your HIV physician, OK? His support is crucial.
