this can be a bit of a catch 22 situation....on the one hand the employee shouldnt have to tell the employers because its private and they would get discriminated against but at the same time...imagine there is an accident that has blood involved with said employee (who may be unconscious and unable to tell them to take precautions) at the workplace and because no-one knew and may not have used protective gloves etc, it puts everyone else at risk....how is that fair to those unknowing people who wanted to help her.

Universal precautions should be used on any biohazardous materials-treat all bodily fluids as dangerous & don't discriminate.
