Kentucky Court Allows HIV Disclosure

Coverx100_288

The Kentucky supreme court has narrowly ruled that the serostatus of HIV-positive employees involved in worker's compensation claims can be legally revealed to their employers. The justices ruled 4'3 that by seeking worker's compensation benefits, employees give up privacy rights regarding their medical conditions. The case was brought by an HIV-positive veterinary assistant who sought medical treatment after being bitten by a cat on the job and had his HIV medical information revealed to his employer.
