Link to an article on legislation that is again encroaching on our privacy.  I hope you read this.

Required Genetic testing in workplace

A bill that would strip genetic privacy protections from workplace “wellness” programs, allowing companies to require employees to undergo genetic testing or risk paying stiff penalties, was approved in the US by a House committee on Wednesday.

All 22 Republicans supported passage of HR 1313, known as the Preserving Employee Wellness Programs Act. All 17 Democrats on the committee opposed the bill.

Stat, which first shone light on the bill on Friday, reports that employers are at present barred from collecting genetic data by legislation that includes GINA: the 2008 Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act.

HR 1313 gets past GINA by stating explicitly that the law’s protections don’t apply when genetic testing is done as part of a workplace wellness program.

More invasion of privacy.  Where will it end.  Soon, we will have to walk around with an electronic collar our whole life?

What happened to the 4th Amendment? This isn't about "preserving employee wellness." It's about unlawful search and seizure of data. No, no, no, no, no!
