Poll: Are Companies Doing Everything They Can For Employees With AIDS?

Yesterday we wrote about the negative stigma surrounding AIDS in the workplace that still exists but now we want to ask you about it. The epidemic has plateaued in the U.S., but there are still about 1.1 million people infected with HIV here. And about 20% do not know they are infected. Those are the ones that more likely will infect other people. Since the world’s first AIDS case was reported 30 years ago, the U.S. has seen close to 600,000 AIDS-related deaths. These numbers indicate that you will, in one way or another, know someone or know of someone who has HIV or AIDS and it may very well be in your place of employment. Are companies doing enough to prepare for this? Despite the fact that ramifications of HIV/AIDS in the workplace, few companies have an established policy to guide their response to this issue. Do you know if your company has a policy for AIDS and HIV?

Sorry! This poll is now closed.
