Is it legal to dismiss a person who has AIDS?

Eventually, many people with HIV start to become ill with AIDS. During this time, an employee may use up a lot of sick leave, and his/her capacity may be affected.
All employees have a right to sick leave and an employer has no right to discriminate against or dismiss an employee who uses these rights. However, an employer is allowed to dismiss an employee on the grounds of incapacity and poor work performance, even if the employee has not used all their sick leave.
