Mar 4, 1998
IS IRT RIGHT TO BE FIRED JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE AIDS?
CAN A STUDENT BE BANANED FROM SCHOOL BECAUSE THEY HAVE AIDS?
IN YOUR OPINION SHOULD EVERYONE HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW THAT YOU HAVE AIDS?
Response from Ms. Breuer
No one can legally be fired, barred from school, or forced to reveal his/her diagnosis simply because it is HIV/AIDS. The answers--not in my opinion, but under U.S. law as I understand it--are no, no and no.
