If my boss finds out I’m HIV positive, can he/she fire me?

Not legally. It would be illegal for your boss to fire you (or demote you or take any such action against you) on the grounds of your HIV status. The HIV Prevention and Control Act prohibits such discrimination in the workplace. It assures that no person shall be denied access to any employment for which he is qualified or transferred, denied promotion or fired on the grounds of his actual or suspected HIV status.
