Disclosing HIV Status at Work

Prejudice and ignorance in society have caused many to keep their HIV status a secret. Others have challenged these attitudes and are open about it at work. The decision to disclose your status is highly personal and it is wise to weigh the potential benefits and risks of disclosing. Disclosing could affect your work environment and your relationships with co workers, but it is a necessary condition of receiving legal protection.
