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" – which incorporates both GINA’s new requirements as well as changes made by the recent amendments to the Americans with Disabilities Act ("ADAAA"), which took effect on January 1, 2009.
