Disclosing HIV Status in Employment
Disclosure of HIV status is a complex issue to be decided by the person living with HIV/AIDS, most often during job interviews and when asking for accommodations. Knowing the applicable laws and thinking the decision through prior to a discussion enable the person with HIV/AIDS to make an informed choice about what and how much to say.
