Annotation: At some point in time, all organizations will have to confront Human immunodeficiency virus infection (HIV) among their staff.
Abstract: To prepare for the possibility of HIV in the workplace, it is suggested that managers are provided with adequate information and assistance to carry out their responsibilities appropriately, effectively, and humanely; that the staff is provided with sufficient knowledge to eliminate unwarranted fears; and that employees infected with HIV retain their civil rights. Suggestions for formulating a workplace policy regarding HIV positive persons are offered, and policy issues concerning employee rights, discrimination, confidentiality, and other critical topics as decided by the courts are discussed. A checklist of procedures for officers who sustain accidental exposure to communicable and infectious diseases is presented.
