Korea: No Discrimination against Those with AIDS/HIV in the Workplace

The Government of Korea will soon enforce legal regulations against any sort of discrimination against people with AIDS and HIV. The Health and Welfare Ministry is due to submit a bill that will seek to shut out any prejudiced treatment of AIDS and HIV patients, in the workplace. This bill will ensure equal rights to them in all areas -promotion, leave of absence and the like.

Penalties for discrimination will include a year's imprisonment or a fine equivalent to US$3,000. This is certainly some reprieve as there has been no law so far in Korea that seeks to remedy discrimination, more so in a place where the numbers of HIV/AIDS cases has shown a steady increase.
