In considering employment rights and AIDS in Hong Kong, this paper tries to draw implications from the generalization and comparison of employment policies on AIDS between the United States and countries of western and northern Europe. It firstly gives a general profile of employment policies on AIDS in these countries and on the local scene, followed by specific discussion of the issues tackled by AIDS policies in the workplace which include testing, confidentially, and discrimination. Though such an investigation, the formulation of local employment policies and educational programme on AIDS is positively raised. These policies are essential in the management of future as well as present human resources problems in Hong Kong, especially when AIDS is infiltrating into the workplace with an estimated proportion of one to two HIV infected individuals per thousand working population.
