Employer response to learning of HIV status of employee
May 4, 2001
My law firm represents a rather unsophisicated owner of a moving company who has just learned that an employee is HIV positive. Although we are aware of the legal issues, we would like to provide him with a basic outline of what his duties, especially regarding confidentiality.
Response from Ms. Franzoi
Since you are a law firm, I suggest you discuss this with the the attorneys in your firm who deal with employment law. Basically, the employer has an obligation to proterct the medical information he has about his employees.
