Title II of GINA
Employment Provisions: The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has approved a proposed final rule to implement the employment title of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA). The proposed regulation notes that covered entities will be required to post notices in conspicuous places describing GINA's applicable provisions.
Poster Not Yet Available:
SHRM anticipates the EEOC will publish the final rule and appropriate language for use in the notice prior to the law’s effective date, November 21, 2009. Shortly thereafter, the mandatory posting will be available for downloading at no charge on SHRM Online as well as the U.S. Department of Labor’s and EEOC’s web sites.
Who Must Post:
Employment provisions in Title II of GINA will apply to the same covered entities as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 whether or not the employer conducts genetic testing. The provisions will prohibit employers from discriminating against individual employees or job candidates on the basis of genetic conditions or predisposition to certain diseases even if an employer does not conduct genetic testing.
