Genetic-Based Discrimination

[dʒəˈnɛdɪk | beɪs | dəˌskrɪməˈneɪʃ(ə)n]

Genetic Based Discrimination is when genetic based information is requested during a hiring process and utilising this information for employment. Employers sometimes request for this information in order to be aware of which candidates are of a high health risk.

The term most of the time refers to an unfair treatment of employees based on their genetic testing information, and example of this is gene mutation, which is one of things that are responsible for the possible risk of inherited disorder. This could then lead to many potential candidates to refusing to carry out this test due to the fear of not being selected if there is a disorder.
