EEOC settles first genetic bias case under GINA

An Oklahoma company has agreed to settle the first EEOC lawsuit ever filed alleging violations of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA).

The EEOC claimed Fabricut, Inc., rescinded a job offer in 2011 after an applicant failed a pre-employment medical examination in which she was asked about her family medical history. That’s illegal.

The company agreed to pay the woman $50,000 to settle the case.

GINA was enacted in 2008, but few employers know much about its far-reaching effects on hiring and employee benefits. Learn more about it at "EEOC issues final GINA regulations."
