The EEOC and Wellness Programs: The Other Shoe Drops (But It's Not That Bad)
Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete, LLPLink to more items from this source
[Guidance Overview]
Nov. 25, 2015

"The GINA statute and the 2010 regulations have a broad definition of 'genetic information' that includes, not only 'true' genetic information like genotypes and DNA tests, but also medical history or examinations of the employee's family members.... It appears that the EEOC is now distinguishing 'true' genetic information (for example, genotypes and DNA tests) from medical history and medical examinations. Very strict rules apply to the former, but the rules relating to the latter are not as strict."
