Outside of a few brothels in Nevada, sexually transmitted diseases are not
usually thought of as workplace hazards. They may, however, create a risk in
medical care or laboratory settings where personnel can come in direct contact
with infected specimens or body fluids. It should be noted, however, that there
may be liability if an employer is on notice of sexual relations between
employees and customers and does not prevent them. This can be a problem
in sex-oriented businesses or at resorts where personnel may supplement their
income through prostitution.
