Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA)
With the new frontier of technology, companies are finding themselves with more information at their fingertips with regard to their employees (and potential employees) than ever before. This new level of knowledge has created many questions in the area of employment law. What can an employer seek to find out, and what can they use when deciding if they should extend or rescind an offer?
The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) answers many of these questions regarding genetic information. The act was passed into law in 2009 but has been difficult for both employer and potential employee to understand or interpret.

Sometimes these “Jekyll and Hyde” switches occur because a superior learned something about a subordinate that then caused him or her to have a negative bias, like the employee was of a certain religion or sexual orientation. Sometimes the reason is more obvious, like a bias against people of a certain race, being male or female, a woman becoming pregnant or people with disabilities.
