impact of HIV AIDS in the workplace
Jan 28, 2012

What are the impacts of HIV AIDS in the workplace

Response from Mr. Chambers

That's a broad question. It obviously varies greatly by employer, however, regardless of what type of employer you have there are legal protections to prevent discrimination. Laws are helpful, but they don't always work in the real world, especially with small employers who don't know the laws and where news travels fast.

The general recommendation is do not discuss your medical situation with anyone where you work whether it's management or a co-worker. If no one knows, then nothing can be done.

Let me know if you have a more specific question.
