Kenya does not have laws protecting workers from being fired- or not hired- because of sexual orientation, except the constitution which generally prohibits discrimination.
The HIV Prevention and Control Act, however, forbids discrimination in hiring or termination of the HIV positive.
Despite this, people continue to experience workplace discrimination based on their HIV status- sexual orientation notwithstanding. We believe that most cases can be resolved by educating both employers and employees about their legal rights and obligation. Often, neither side is aware of their status.
