An end to HIV discrimination at work

From 5th December 2005 it is now unlawful to discriminate against people living with HIV in the work place, effectively from the point of diagnosis. This is because the Disability Discrimination Act 2005 came into effect .

Whether it's fear and ignorance about how HIV is transmitted, dislike of groups of people most affected or disapproval of other people's behaviour, HIV discrimination is a real issue in the workplace. But now people don't have to put up with it. Further information about this is available in a Fact Sheet 'Positively Employed' produced by the National AIDS Trust. Click here or the adjacent button to view and/or download an Acrobat PDF version of this important information. Alternatively you can contact the KPS Help line on 01208 264866 for further details and your rights.

Further information on welfare benefits and advocacy in all areas of Welfare Rights advice is available by calling the KPS help line.
