• Only if they work in an environment where it could possibly be a concern.
  • No. In the healthcare field you are taught to use universal precautions. That means you use whatever protection is necesarry for what you are doing no matter who you are doing it to. Then there is no reason to know.
  • No. The risk of transmitting HIV in a workplace setting is nearly negligable, far less then the risk of spreading the cold or flu virus. Because the risk is so low and the information could bias a supervisor and/or co-workers, an HIV positive person should not have to report his status.
  • Not in most cases.
  • yes because if someone gets cut or something then you risk passing it on and if you know then you could prevent from geting it so i think so
  • They should not for this is personal information that is private.Why should one give up information about themselves for it leads to discrimination.
  • Depending on the type of work involved, for example...i work in a hospital and we need to know if a colleague has HIV, we are dealing with wounds, bodily fluids and of course contamination, so in the medical fields..then yes.....hardly worth knowing if working in an office, unless they have a major paper cut!
  • I guess that depends on the job. Most likely, if the employer needs to know they will have a policy in place that says as much.
  • Only in a hospital or medical setting, usually even in those situations HIV positive people do not work in trauma, surgery or E/R high risk areas etc. Medical yes, anywhere else HELL NO
  • i dont think so, its noone's business, they just need to be careful not to spread it
