|revealing hiv to employers
Apr 1, 2009
Am I required by law to reveal my HIV status to my employers or am I protected by the discrimination act of 1990?
| Response from Ms. Breuer
You have no obligation to reveal your diagnosis to your employer. If you need reasonable accommodation, you have to disclose that you are a person with a disability, but you do NOT have to name the diagnosis that leads to that disability. For example, if you need access to a bathroom close to your work station because your meds can give you diarrhea, your doc writes a brief note asking that you work in a location with nearby access to a bathroom for medical reasons. Privacy and dignity remain intact! I'm so glad you asked without just leaping ahead.
