Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act

Addition of the GINA Amendment to the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Law

11/21/2009


On November 21, 2009 the Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act (GINA) will took effect. These laws prohibit the collection and use of employees genetic information to be used in workplace decisions such as hiring, firing, promotions, demotions, compensation, etc. We now have these postings included on our Federal and Combo posters.

Actions Specifically Prohibited Include:

  1. Retaliation against employees exercising their rights under GINA
  2. Discrimination using genetics based decisions with predisposition to certain illnesses in decisions of compensation, hiring, firing, promotions, etc.
  3. The collection and disclosure of genetic information.

In short, GINA protects employees from having their DNA used against them, making personal genetics another protected class alongside of race, religion, creed, etc.

The EEOC began enforcing the new laws on November 21, 2009 and the new federal EEO posting is now available and is required.
