Is Your Company Prepared? New Discrimination Provisions Become Effective November 21, 2009

The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 ('GINA') Becomes Effective November 21, 2009, and is likely to have a potentially significant impact on a variety of employer obligations, policies and practices. For example, GINA will impact existing Company employee handbook policies, practices relating to medical and physical examinations, wellness programs, and record-keeping and training practices. In addition, effective immediately, employers must post the new version of the EEOC poster – 'Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law' – incorporating new requirements of GINA and ADAAA
