GOP Wants Your Boss To Be Free To Impose Genetics Testing On You

Your boss could make you submit to genetic testing under the Republican backed U.S. House Bill 1313. If you refuse to undergo the testing as part of an employer wellness program you could be charged thousands of dollars more per year for your healthcare.

The bill was introduced by GOP Rep. Virginia Foxx of North Carolina.

More than 60 organizations oppose this bill because it undermines basic privacy for workers under the Americans With Disabilities Act and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act.

The bill letting employers impose genetic testing on workers was supported by all 22 Republicans on the House Education and the Workforce committee.

All Democrats on the committee voted against it.
