Can an employer dismiss you when you have HIV but still healthy?

No. The employment Act sets out the procedures for dismissal. Dismissing you simply because you are known or suspected to have HIV is clearly unfair. This is because it violates the employee’s fundamental rights and has nothing to do with the conduct or capacity of the employee, or the workplace requirements of the employer.
