Price: $30.95



The only guide to GINA written exclusively for federal practitioners!

Make sure you know the proper ways to request employees' medical information and to handle the information you receive.

In straightforward question-and-answer format, this resource spells out everything your agency needs to know about the Genetic Information and Nondiscrimination Act. All areas of the law are explained -- from confidentiality and disclosure, to reasonable accommodation, retaliation, family members, and more.

With special emphasis on what the EEOC considers compliant and noncompliant practices, Q&As help your agency avoid GINA violations by providing specific guidance on how to:

  • Handle genetic information inadvertently received from employees
  • Determine if the agency may access employee information on a social media source
  • Structure wellness programs that include incentives for which employees are induced to reveal genetic information
  • Establish a compliant procedure for FMLA certification

Plus, full text of specific portions of the law relevant to federal employers keep you from getting lost in irrelevant legislative language.
