Chapter Summary

The chapter presents author's view on Employment discrimination against people who have HIV positive, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B and Syphilis. It also contains his views on defects in law and policy combating health discrimination in employment. The majority of HIV/AIDS sufferers are unable to receive equal treatment in employment, including equal opportunities of employment, and equal opportunities in education which will lead to employment opportunities and so on. The reasons for which people deny the right to access employment by people who have recovered from syphilis are different from those reasons concerning sufferers of other infectious diseases. The majority of sufferers are promiscuous, and their sexual behaviour is opposed to Chinese traditional culture and moral philosophies. There is no specialised apparatus to protect rights in discrimination cases. This means that when workers suffer from health discrimination, they often find themselves with nowhere to turn.
