oa Comparative and International Law Journal of Southern Africa - HIV/AIDS and employment law: a comparative synopsis

Volume 26, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 0010-4051



This article identifies some of the problems which HIV/AIDS poses for an employment relationship and how law continues to deal with them against the background of what has already been written on the subject within the employment relationship. The intention here, is to avoid as far as possible, re-writing what others have written on the issue and rather to expose what are basically divergent approaches to the HIV/AIDS bane in the workplace. Four countries, viz Botswana, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States of America are considered. Because HIV infection continues to invoke unwarranted phobia and undue bigotry, the initial focus is on the clinical aspects of the condition.
