Limited Time Opportunity for Genetic Discrimination

Science Progress has a few articles on progress implementing the Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act. (And you thought you were already covered.) In this column, Rick Weiss reports that "the deadline is looming for federal agencies to release rules spelling out how they will interpret and enforce that historic legislation." Weiss notes that the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission will release today a guideline on "how that agency intends to implement GINA’s so-called Title II provisions, which deal with genetic discrimination in the workplace."

Meanwhile, here's another piece from Science Progress digging into the data of genetic discrimination, with charts on genetic testing trends and a couple of case studies of lawsuits charging genetic-based discrimination.
