Standing Up Against Unfair Treatment Based on Genetic Information

Standing up against unfair treatment based on genetic information is a fundamental aspect of Castronovo & McKinney, LLC‘s commitment to equality and justice in the workplace. Headquartered in Morristown, NJ, our firm serves as a dedicated legal advocate for individuals who have experienced discrimination, harassment, or privacy violations due to their genetic information.

Genetic information discrimination occurs when individuals are treated unfairly in the workplace based on their genetic characteristics or predisposition to certain diseases or conditions. This form of discrimination undermines the principles of fairness, respect, and dignity, and it is prohibited by the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) and other relevant laws.

At Castronovo & McKinney, LLC, we recognize the potential risks and consequences associated with the misuse or disclosure of genetic information in the workplace. We are committed to advocating for the rights of individuals to keep their genetic information private and to be treated with dignity, respect, and fairness, regardless of their genetic predispositions.

One of the key aspects of our approach is our dedication to educating employers about their obligations under GINA and the importance of protecting employees’ genetic privacy. We work with employers to develop and implement policies and practices that comply with GINA requirements, including prohibitions on requesting, obtaining, or using genetic information in employment decisions.

Moreover, Castronovo & McKinney, LLC, provides legal representation to individuals who have experienced genetic information discrimination or privacy violations in the workplace. Whether it’s being subjected to genetic testing without consent, facing retaliation for refusing to disclose genetic information, or experiencing adverse employment actions based on genetic characteristics, our firm advocates tirelessly on behalf of our clients to hold employers accountable for violations of their rights and to secure remedies and compensation for the harm they have suffered.

In addition to legal advocacy, Castronovo & McKinney, LLC, is actively involved in efforts to raise awareness about genetic information discrimination and privacy rights in the workplace. We provide educational resources, workshops, and seminars to help employers understand their obligations under GINA and to promote a culture of respect for employees’ genetic privacy.

Ultimately, Castronovo & McKinney, LLC, stands as a trusted ally for individuals seeking to assert their rights and protect their genetic information in the workplace. With a combination of legal expertise, compassion, and dedication, our firm works tirelessly to ensure that all employees are treated with dignity, respect, and fairness, regardless of their genetic characteristics or predispositions.
