Abstract
There is a real relationship between the HIV/AIDS pandemic and the world of work. The complexities in the relationship are strengthened by the long asymptomatic period of the disease and its significant presence among a certain age group that forms a major part of the work force. The presence of HIV/AIDS in a workplace, if not effectively managed, leads to unpleasant effects such as an increase in the cost of production, which translates into income loss and capital depletion. Superficial knowledge of these factors often makes the workplace hostile and leads to a culture of discrimination in which the well-being and rights of those affected by the virus are either undermined or out rightly ignored. An effective way of mitigating these negative effects is the provision of workplace reasonable accommodation measures. This paper proposes pragmatic legal ways of meeting the reasonable accommodation needs of people living with HIV/AIDS in Canada.
