Basic Facts About HIV and the Law

HIV/AIDS affects companies and organizations in many ways. Managers and labor leaders are gathering information, talking with their trade and professional associations, learning more about HIV/AIDS, and preparing strategies for HIV/AIDS programs and policies suitable for their companies.

The majority of people infected with HIV are between the ages of 25-44 and are employed. The increase in the number of people with HIV means that there will be more employees with HIV on the job in the future. That could mean that you, someone you know or employ, or an employee's family member or close friend is already coping with HIV or AIDS. It is important that you know the laws surrounding HIV/AIDS and how they affect labor leaders, managers, and you.
