Abstract:


Legalistic organizational responses to catastrophic illness: The effect of stigmatization on reactions to HIV/ AIDS

The HIV/AIDS epidemic has focused increased attention on catastrophic illness in the workplace, and because of the stigmas associated with HIV/AIDS, it raises three primary concerns for organizations:

(1) organizational avoidance of legal sanctions and litigation;
(2) the maintenance of organizational legitimacy; and
(3) organizational protection of employee rights.

Although many organizations adopt legalistic responses to cope with these concerns, the analysis in this article suggests that while legalistic approaches function well to protect organizational interests in terms of both legal liability and legitimacy, they are only partially able to protect employee rights. Drawing upon the limited literature on HIV/AIDS in the workplace, this article presents an agenda for future research organizational responses to HIV/AIDS.
