Genetic Information Discrimination Is Illegal

The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act ("GINA")took effect in 2009 and prohibits employment discrimination on the basis of an applicant or employee's genetic information.

The law is meant to protect employees from being discriminated against because their genetic information may reveal a propensity to develop medical conditions. The logic behind the law is that individuals may not get genetic tests and obtain preventative treatment if doing so could adversely affect an individual's employment opportunities.

What is Genetic Information?

Genetic information includes information about an individual's genetic tests and the tests of their family members. Although the ADA, not GINA protects employees when a medical condition manifests, GINA does treat information concerning manifestation of a disease or disorder in a person's family members. Family medical histories are included because they are often used to determine if a person has an increased risk of developing a particular disorder or disease.

What Is Genetic Information Discrimination

Employment discrimination on the basis of genetic information involves treating an applicant or employee differently than others with respect to the terms, conditions and privileges of employment including hiring, discharge, promotion, compensation, discipline, layoffs, job assignments, benefits and training.
