Aids and HIV Policy Outline

The Centre is committed to equality of opportunity in its employment. It is also committed to protecting and promoting the health of its employees.

The risks of infection through normal workplace contact are negligible. All authorities endorse the view that HIV cannot be transmitted by everyday contact and, for example, by sharing lavatories and shared utensils.

There should be no discrimination against anyone with, or at risk of acquiring HIV. Employees with HIV or AIDS should be treated in exactly the same way as any employee with any other life-threatening illness.


Statement of Policy

  • The Centre is committed to promoting an academic and work environment that is free from all forms of harassment and discrimination whether that discrimination or harassment is because of race, colour, national origin, disability, religion, age, veteran status, any other characteristic protected by law or any other characteristic specific to the person being harassed.
