12.4.09

The EEOC has issued a new poster to reflect, among other recent changes, the Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act requirements. The GINA took effect on November 21, 2009.  

Employers have two posting options: (1) they may download a "Supplement" and post it alongside the old EEO poster, or (2) they may download a completely updated EEO poster. The supplements and the new posters are both available at the EEOC's revamped website. Spanish, Arabic, and Chinese versions are also available.  

The EEOC has promulgated proposed regulations interpreting the GINA, but final regulations have not been issued. Constangy will provide a detailed Client Bulletin on GINA when the final regulations are issued.  

In the meantime, if you have any questions about the GINA or any federal non-discrimination laws, please contact any member of Constangy's Litigation Practice Group, or the Constangy attorney of your choice.
