The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA) imposes new restrictions. The regulations provide that an employer may violate the law even when there is no specific intent to obtain 'genetic information,' a term which is broadly defined and surprises many people when they learn what it includes. Previously allowed medical information requests for FMLA, ADA accommodation or other similar purposes may now violate the law. Don't miss this vital session on GINA compliance!
