Health Care Laws & Their Impact On Employee Rights, From NELA's 2013 Annual Convention
Published by National Employment Lawyers Association




Summary
The passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), as well as the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA), created new rights and remedies for employees in the area of health care. For example, the ACA amended the Fair Labor Standards Act to ensure that no employer shall discharge or in any manner discriminate against any employee because the employee has received a premium tax credit, reported employer violations of the ACA (whistleblowing), or participated in proceedings against an employer for violations of the ACA. GINA prohibits employers from using an individual’s genetic information (which is defined to include knowledge of “family medical history”) to make hiring, firing, job placement, or promotion decisions. This presentation explores the legal rights and remedies provided by ACA and GINA for employees, and how to secure them for your clients.
