EEOC Adopts Final Rule for Recordkeeping Under GINA

Tuesday, February 14, 2012
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) extended its record keeping requirements under Title VII and the Americans with Disabilities Act to entities covered by the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA).  GINA applies to employers with at least 15 employees, employment agencies, labor unions, joint labor-management training programs, and federal sector employers.  GINA prohibits these entities from discriminating against employees and applicants for employment based on their genetic information.  

The recordkeeping rule requires these covered entities to segregate medical or genetic information.  The entity must keep all documentation that relates to a GINA charge until a final disposition of such charge.  The final rule takes effect April 3, 2012.
