Ethics and genetics: Susceptibility testing in the workplace [Book Review]

Journal of Business Ethics 35 (3):235 - 241 (2002)
Abstract
Genetic testing in the workplace is a technology both full of promise and fraught with ethical peril. Though not yet common, it is likely to become increasingly so. We survey the key arguments in favour of such testing, along with the most significant ethical worries. We further propose a set of pragmatic criteria, which, if met, would make it permissible for employers to offer (but not to require) workplace genetic testing.
