Q:  Will the final regulations that were issued by the EEOC at the end of 2010 for the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act cause a change to the federal EEOC poster? 

A:  The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) Title II went into effect in November 2009.  At that time the EEOC revised the federal “Equal Employment Opportunity Is the Law” poster to include a new section about GINA (called “Genetics”), and the new version was added to our federal labor law poster.  

The final regulations for GINA Title II which were issued in November 2010 did not cause a further change to the EEOC poster.
