Genetic Discrimination
Genetics in the Workplace 
Louisiana law forbids genetic disc rimination and limits genetic 
testing in the workforce. 
De fi nitions 
Key terms are used to establish speci fi c genetic discrimination 
and privacy protections. They are as follows: 
1.  “  Genetic monitoring” is the periodic examination of 
employees to evaluate change s to their genetic material 
that may have developed in the course of employment 
due to exposure to toxic substances in the workplace.
2.  “  Genetic services” are de fi ned as the health 
services provided to obtain, assess, or interpret 
genetic information for diagnostic or therapeutic 
purposes, or for genetic education or counseling.
3.  “  Genetic test” means the analysis of human DNA, RNA, 
chromosomes, and those proteins and metabolites 
used to detect heritable or some somatic disease-
related genotypes or karyotypes for clinical purposes. 
It must be generally accepted in the scienti fi c and 
medical communities to qualify under this de fi nition.
4.   “Protected genetic information” is information about the 
genetic tests of an individual  or that of an individual’s 
family members, or the occurrence of a disease, or medical 
condition or disorder in fami ly members of the individual. 
Nondiscrimination
Louisiana law also provides that an employer, labor 
organization or employment ag ency shall not discriminate 
on the basis of protected genetic information, and an 
employer, labor organization or joint labor management 
committee controlling apprenticeship, on-the-job 
training or other training pr ogram shall not discriminate 
on the basis of protected genetic information. 
E xceptions 
An employer, labor organization or employment agency 
may request protected genetic information with an offer of 
employment. They may request, collect or purchase protected 
genetic information if there is a request for, or receipt of, 
genetic services and the effect of genetic monitoring of 
toxic substance shall be permitted in the workplace.
If you believe you have 
been discriminated against,
