This may be a reflection of a greater preparedness of organizations with Constructive policies, knowing these to be ‘good practice’, to allow outside disclosure. The basis for our analysis of policy documents is the distinction between two dimensions of content: conditionality, the extent to which the treatment of those with AIDS/HIV is conditional upon and subordinate to explicit concerns for organizational interests, either reputation or commercial; and exclusion, the extent to which it is regarded as possible or desirable to identify and separate those with HIV/AIDS either by severance/non-employment or by less favourable treatment.

In this they have also been able to draw upon traditional ideas of health and illness that continue to inform practices of health and safety at work, where the emphasis is on the managerial duty, in law and good practice, to protect employees and the public from hazard. Thus, when faced by widely circulating discourses of threat, no matter how exaggerated or misinformed, the tendency to over-react by developing defensive measures was and is encouraged on the grounds of ‘better safe than sorry’.

Under these conditions the individual clearly does not arrive at the decision to be tested of their own volition and, while they can refuse to submit to the test, this will, almost inevitably, deny them the opportunity of employment.
