Recruitment is a crucial step into work.
Often people living with HIV can face discrimination during the recruitment process – sometimes even when none is intended.
The Equality Act, which came into effect in October 2010, prohibits the use of pre-employment health questionnaires before the offer of a job has been made. NAT have developed a new guide for employers and job applicants living with HIV to help ensure that the recruitment process treats people fairly and is free from discrimination.
