HIV Positive Discrimination

Philadelphia discrimination lawyers at Sidney L. Gold & Associates represent clients who have been denied employment, demoted, harassed, or terminated due to their positive HIV status.  Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), it is unlawful for an employer to inquire about an applicant or employee’s HIV status.   It is also unlawful to refuse to provide reasonable accommodations to HIV positive employees.  Employers are required to consider only the applicant or employee’s ability to perform their work duties regardless of their HIV status.

Reasonable accommodations for HIV positive employees include, but are not limited to, modified work schedules, adjusted job descriptions, adaptive or mobility assisted devices, and other adjustments necessary for the employee to perform the duties of their job.  Failure to provide these accommodations violates the ADA.

For more information on HIV positive discrimination, contact the Philadelphia employment law firm of Sidney L. Gold & Associates at 215-569-1999, or complete our online contact form.
