--- Quote ---$90K Settlement in HIV Discrimination Case Against Sheriff’s Office
“This settlement is a lesson to all employers that HIV discrimination in the workplace is completely unlawful and has no place anywhere.”

A sheriff’s office in Louisiana agreed to pay $90,000 in damages in an HIV discrimination lawsuit. The case involves former police officer William “Liam” Pierce, who was offered a job as a sheriff’s deputy in Iberia Parish only to have it rescinded after he acknowledged he had HIV.
