As of November 21, 2009, covered employers will be required to post information on the ban on employment discrimination based on genetic information contained in the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA). GINA prohibits employers from discriminating against applicants and employees based on genetic information. The law also restricts employers' acquisition and disclosure of genetic information. The employment provisions of GINA apply to private and state and local government employers with 15 or more employees, employment agencies, labor unions, and joint labor-management training programs. They also cover Congress and federal executive branch agencies.
