Have you heard of GINA?  If not, read up…

GINA is the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008.  The law went into effect on November 21, 2009.

Progressive Business Compliance posted this update today:

“On May 21, 2008, Former President George W. Bush signed the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) of 2008 into law.  GINA includes two distinct titles.  Title I addresses the use of genetic information in health insurance.  Title II of GINA prohibits employers from collecting genetic information from employees, and using this information to make decisions regarding employment.”

As a result of this law, make sure your company is compliant – your Federal EEOC poster must be updated immediately.  As a perk for our readers, you can print the poster update for free here.  Keep in mind that you almost never need to buy a poster, because they’re usually available online…
