If you are suffering with a diagnosis of HIV or AIDS, you are likely already facing myriad challenges that can affect multiple areas of your life. One issue you may face is discriminatory treatment from your Florida employer because of your medical diagnosis. Victims of discrimination on the basis of their illness have the right to fight back.
The Americans with Disabilities Act states that employers cannot act in a discriminatory manner against individuals with a disability. This can include HIV or AIDS. This means that your medical condition cannot be a determining factor in your job security, pay and career opportunities.
