hi all,
 
I'm a Chinese carrier. I just found this forum. So lucky to get connected with the world group.
 
I have a question. In your knowledge, is there any other country besides China, has national-wide employment pre-screening towards Hep B? Totally discrimination. I just want to know this kind of employment discrimination or prescreening is only in China, or some sort of common in the world.

Welcome cshbv,

Well in the United States, for most jobs you do not have to take a physical. And you don't have to let your employer know your medical history. Your medical records for the most part are protected as private information. If any job does require a physical that includes any lab work for the hepatitis viruses then it has to be made known to the employer. Especially if you are trying to get a job in a field where there's a chance of blood transfer. In that case, they would probably choose not to hire you for everyone's safety. If you are trying to work at a job where there is no chance of blood transfer then yes I believe it is a form of discrimination. We don't have a national-wide prescreening for hep B. And yes there is job discrimation here. But they cloak it well. Our big employers know all the ropes on how to discriminate with out getting into trouble. So if I had any contagious disease that wasn't easily transferred to someone else. I sure would not tell my employer. In fact my husband does have Hep C and I have not told anyone at work. I don't trust big businesses. Sometimes they are not fair. Hope this helps............ :-) Pink Grandma

Thanks Pink Grandma. It surely helps. How lucky you and your husband are in US, not in China. Hope your monitoring or treatment goes well. I wish I could be there somehow. What about other countries in the world?
