how many have been fired due to HIV?
Jun 23, 1998
How many HIV victims have been fired after their employer found out that they had HIV?
Response from Ms. Breuer
Too many. One would be too many.
That said, there is no data-gathering function that I know of addressing this question. Suffice it to say that it still happens, in 1998, despite the widespread availability of high-quality public health information on this issue. A person with HIV at work poses no threat to the health of others as long as they are doing what their job descriptions say.
