[PDF] Hoffmann v South African Airways
Author: Constitutional Court of South Africa, Published on: 28 September 2000
This appeal concerns the constitutionality of South African Airways’ (SAA) practice of refusing to employ as cabin attendants people who are living with HIV…On the medical evidence, an asymptomatic HIV positive person can perform the work of a cabin attendant competently…There can be no doubt that SAA discriminated against the appellant because of his HIV status. Neither the purpose of the discrimination nor the objective medical evidence justifies such discrimination…[T]herefore, that the appropriate relief in the circumstances of this case is an order directing SAA to employ the appellant as a cabin attendant with effect from the date of the order of this Court.
