Client Alert - EEOC Settles First GINA Case

On May 7, 2013, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced that it settled the first lawsuit it filed under the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA). The employer agreed to pay $50,000 and furnish other relief to settle the case in which the EEOC alleged violations of GINA and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The case is a reminder that employers should be familiar with and incorporate available safe harbors into their policies and practices.

We have prepared a Client Alert.pdf regarding the decision.

If you have any questions regarding this Client Alert or need assistance with any other employment or labor law issue, please contact Angela Thomas or Glenn Davis at 717‑620‑2424.
