AIDS and Related Conditions

It is the policy of Florence-Darlington Technical College to ensure that employees and students with AIDS, AIDS Related Complex (ARC) and Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infection (HIV) continue their active employment or enrollment as long as they are able to meet acceptable academic and work performance standards.

Supervisors, employees and students will be sensitive to the special needs and concerns of employees and students with such conditions, but generally should ensure that they are treated no differently than other employees or students.  Strict confidentiality of information and communication will be maintained regarding any aspect of actual or suspected AIDS, ARC, or HIV situations.

In each situation involving known cases of AIDS or related conditions, consultation with appropriate public health officials will take place.
