Can a person with hepatitis c and HIV work in a restaurant?
I work at there. I found out they were hiring this guy next week, I talked to a nurse and she said I can't say anything, to the owner, because of the persons rights, sometimes employees cut themselves. please advise me of what to do, if I say something to my boss, the other co-worker will know it came . from me. Additional Details theres another girl who works there, she is in the medical field,she is the one who told me,so she can't say anything because of privacy rights.
Somehow that must break 'Health & Safety' standards!
I would DEFINITELY tell your boss and make him agree to confidentiality.
You are protected by law to say things confidentially - the person with Hep-C or HIV may not be.
DO IT!! You could save someone's life.
I worked in the food industry and know that not everyone has good hygiene. For example, not everyone washes their hands after using the bathroom, and saliva is EASY to get on your hand if you sneeze and don't wash it off. These two examples alone could contaminate a person's plate in a restaurant!
How can people be complacent about this??
I wouldn't even WORK alongside someone I knew had HIV or Hep-C, let alone allow them to work with people's food!!
Seriously - your friend may be in the medical profession, but she is not a lawyer or a human resources representative. She may just be assuming this. Contact your boss immediately before someone becomes contaminated.
I would assume that by law it is ok that the person works there but I find it highly inappropriate they would choose a career in this field BECAUSE of the levels of contamination that could arise.. I have nothing against those people until they endanger others, and because of the industry I believe that there is more of a danger that this person could infect others and that is really selfish of them!
i wouldnt stand back and do nothing they have to tell that they have it i am almost sure i would call a lawyer a lot of them will answer questions for free good luck and try to find out keep it safe
They are also human beings and you must respect them.
You cannot get infected while working with them.
It is 100% safet to work with them.
Never heard such bigoted uninformed people answering a question they know nothing about, I am a Paramedic that has had Hep C for 4 years and on medication for it, the Virus is blood to blood ONLY. I worked on the ambulance with this virus, and once you start the meds within 4 weeks your viral load is lowered to uncontagious at all, is he on meds? bet you don't even know. Go ahead tell everyone, I'm sure his life can't get any more screwed up. Go to hcvadvocate if you really are interested in knowing the facts.
tell me something
if you wouldn't have known he was infected---would you still have worked along side him??
you never know who's infected, your neighbor...your mail man....someone who works at a place where you eat....
you're discriminating and that's a sad sad thing
he has every right to be employed maybe he needs the money for his meds. how about a little sympathy?? put yourself in his shoes for a minute. haven't you seen the movie Philadelphia??? if not I suggest you watch it, it's about a HIV/AIDS discrimination lawsuit and in the end----he wins millions......just some food for thought
YOU do the dishes.
Not till they are cured they are still contagious. How did you find out about it? I would definitely mention it the boss, but make sure that he doesn't divulge how he got the information that others know it to. The boss should have this person get something from a doctor certifying he is safe to work in a restaurant and with food.
