Working in a restraunt.
Nov 23, 2003

Am i allowed to work in a restraunt if i am hiv positive?Need to know because that is my job now and i don't want to lose it.

Response from Ms. Breuer

Yes, you are allowed to work in a restaurant. LIke every other restaurant worker, you are required to take care of your cuts as soon as they occur and bandage appropriately. I advise you not to disclose your condition, since discrimination against HIV+ restaurant workers has not disappeared.
