Living With HIV

If you are returning to work or changing jobs, a new employer cannot ask about your health condition.

Next » « Previous


Employers can ask questions about your appearance, but not about your health. For instance, if you lost a leg to disease, an employer would be able to ask how you can do your job with one leg. He or she cannot ask how you lost your leg.

When writing your resume, there are some tips to consider. For instance, write your resume so that gaps due to illness are not readily apparent.

Think about when to tell about your health condition, if at all. For instance, consider telling after you have the job offer and before you start work so an employer doesn’t feel misled if you need medical care soon after starting the job, or an accommodation to help you do your job.

Consider volunteering before you start work. Retraining is available if needed.
