GINA and Sick Leave
I was wondering how many HR folks were aware of the impact of GINA (the Genetic Nondiscrimination law) on sick leave policies. Sounds like if we require a doctor's note for absences of more than two or three days, we must include a GINA safe harbor statement with the request for the note (see BLR article at http://hr.blr.com/HR-news/HR-Administration/Employee-Privacy/GINA-Impacts-Sick-Leave-Policies-Doctors-Notes-Are/).
I was unaware of this rule. Anyone else?
