Abstract This document deals with legal questions raised by AIDS seropositivity in connection with hiring practices in France (documents that may be required, pre-employment medical examinations, contents of the occupational aptitude card) and with the carrying out of the employment contract (adaptation of the job in line with the health requirements of the worker or transfer to another position, problems in the workplace due to the presence of a seropositive worker, right to refuse dangerous work). The legal situation with respect to laying off or dismissing seropositive workers is also discussed.
