The GINA's Out of the Bottle--And It's a New Weapon in the Work-Family Arsenal
Delaware Employment Law Blog Link to more items from this source
[Opinion]
Feb. 10, 2010
Excerpt: The key to GINA's applicability to work-family and caregiver scenarios is its definition of 'genetic information,' which includes 'the genetic tests of family members [of the employee]' and 'the manifestation of a disease or disorder in family members [of the employee].' 'Family member,' in turn, is defined as 'a dependent as used for purposes of ERISA,' and up to a fourth-degree relative (i.e., great-great grandparents and all cousins, aunts, and uncles inbetween). Notably, the scope includes adoptive children and parents, whose genes are entirely unrelated to the employees'.
