Guidelines on addressing HIV/AIDS in the workplace through employment and labour law
This publication provides technical guidance on how best to incorporate, taking into account the various national circumstances and legal traditions, the body of international principles that have arisen in the field of labour law, in particular citing innovative and successful examples of the substantive content of employment and labour laws. In addition, it provides some examples in the area of enforcement.
The aim of this publication is to provide specific, workable and practical examples of how to include in labour and employment laws the concepts of prevention, protection and care/support of persons living with HIV/AIDS. It is designed for policy-makers within governments, legislators, workers’ organizations, employers’ organizations, national AIDS Councils, labour lawyers and judges and, indeed, all practitioners and technicians involved in labour rights and the quest for decent work.
