Genetic Information Discrimination
Based on numerous requests, we are pleased to provide you with the highlights of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA).
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has updated its required notice to include the mandatory changes from Title II of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA), which prohibits genetic information discrimination in employment, and takes effect on November 21, 2009. All Employers with 15 or more employees are covered.
Overall, under Title II of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA), it is illegal to discriminate against employees or applicants because of genetic information. This includes the use of genetic information in employment decisions, inappropriate and illegal acquisition and disclosure or distribution of genetic information by employers and other entities covered by Title
Genetic information includes information about an individual's genetic tests and the genetic tests of an individual's family members, as well as information about any disease, disorder, or condition of an individual's family members. Family medical history is included in the definition of genetic information.
The law forbids discrimination on the basis of genetic information when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoffs, training, fringe benefits, or any other term or condition of employment. Any genetic information must be maintained in a similar manner to protected personal medical information.
The EEOC has revised its "Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law" poster with several updates. Employers are encouraged to update their compliance policies, procedures, handbooks and posters with all the revised information and provide the appropriate compliance update to all employees who may have opportunity to come into possession of employee or candidate genetic information, either oral or written.
If you wish to discuss further or believe you need compliance or training assistance please give us a call at 1-404-386-9097. Anyone on the HR Access Team will be happy to assist you
