Journal of Business Ethics 13 (11):839 - 848 (1994)
Abstract
This paper examines moral issues concerning a firm''s use of genetic information about a prospective employee''s predisposition to contract occupational and other illnesses. It critically reviews leading social construction literature on genetic abnormality and genetic screening, and it examines the relevance of arguments from justice and meritocratic principles. It concludes that there is a strong moral presumption against genetic screening in employment.
