HIV/AIDS and the ADA
July 8th, 2012 by JBWK
In another bit of useful guidance, the Department of Justice has released a fact sheet containing frequently asked questions regarding HIV/AIDS and the Americans with Disabilities Act (available here).
It contains several very helpful questions and answers for employers, such as:
- Can an employer consider health and safety when deciding whether to hire an applicant who has HIV/AIDS?
- When can an employer inquire into an applicant’s or employee’s HIV status?
- What obligations does an employer have if an employee discloses his or her HIV status?
Some of the answers may come as a surprise, so it’s worth reading.
