HIV Discrimination in Florida
The Sass Law Firm represents employees in HIV discrimination cases. Federal and state laws protect employees against HIV discrimination and AIDS discrimination. In other words, employers may not discriminate against you because you are an HIV carrier or have contracted AIDS. If you feel you have suffered HIV or AIDS discrimination in not being hired, being fired, or in any other manner, including being subjected to a hostile work environment, and seek to challenge the discrimination, either through the employer or the courts, please call the Sass Law Firm to schedule a consultation to learn more about your rights and potential remedies. HIV discrimination and AIDS discrimination are against the law.
HIV Harassment and Hostile Work Environment
The federal and state laws prohibiting treating employees differently with regard to the terms, conditions and privileges of employment based upon HIV and AIDS also make it illegal to subject an employee to harassment because of being an HIV carrier or having contracted AIDS. For example, if you are frequently subjected to offensive comments regarding HIV or AIDS by co-workers or supervisors, it could be considered unlawful harassment or creating a hostile work environment. If you feel you are being harassed because of HIV or AIDS, and need assistance with seeking internal remedies and/or legal remedies if the harassment does not stop, please call the Sass Law Firm to schedule a consultation to learn more about your rights. HIV/AIDS harassment is against the law.
Additionally, if you are retaliated against for complaining about the HIV/AIDS harassment or HIV/AIDS discrimination, please call the Sass Law Firm to schedule a consultation to learn more about your rights and potential remedies. Retaliation is against the law.
