Kansas Restaurant Forced Out Employee After Learning He Is HIV Positive

A former employee of Kansas restaurant chain ‘The Big Biscuit’ claims in a lawsuit that he was "forced out" of his job after informing his manager that he was diagnosed with HIV.

The lawsuit says that Armando Guiterrez “approached his manager after learning about his diagnosis because he needed proof that he didn’t have employer-provided health insurance. He also brought in the necessary paperwork for his manager to sign,” according to ‘Fox News’. 

The next day he was informed he was being transferred and asked to work on specific days, which his boss already knew he needed off. After not compromising with the schedule change, Guiterrez was fired. 

It’s not yet clear what damages Guiterrez is suing for.
