Florida readers know that it is illegal to display discriminatory behavior in the workplace toward individuals with certain medical conditions. This can include HIV. A recent case in another state illustrates how employees can fight back against discrimination and pursue a beneficial outcome to their situation.
Certain people, including those with HIV, still have a variety of challenges in the workplace, despite changes in the laws and cultural perception. In this particular situation, a man received a job offer to work as a sheriff's deputy, only to lose this offer after the department learned that he has HIV. He is currently fighting back in court, claiming that he experienced HIV employment discrimination.
