Genetic-based Discrimination

What is Genetic-based Discrimination ?

‘Genetic-based Discrimination’ refers to the discrimination faced by a certain group of people who are at a greater risk of contracting an inherited disease based on the mutation of their genes.

Companies sometimes request the candidates to undergo genetic testing to understand whether the candidate would have the gene mutation which results in them being vulnerable to the inherited diseases.

This fact should not result in the candidate being removed from the recruitment process. The candidate would also be fearful of getting the same test done later for the fear of other companies discriminating against them based on the results. Hence, strict laws are required to be implemented to identify and stop genetic-based discrimination.
