TSA to Review Guidelines for HIV-Positive Job Applicants
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will review its medical guidelines for job applicants after the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a complaint on behalf of a man denied employment because of his HIV-positive status, according to an ACLU statement. Michael Lamarre, an Air Force veteran, was refused a job as a transportation security officer because the TSA claimed his HIV status made him more susceptible to infections, despite assurances from his physician that he was capable of performing the job.
