No. Anyone who takes a genetic test is protected by the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008, also known as GINA. This federal law prevents discrimination against anyone based on their genetic information.
This means that it is against the law for a current or future employer to
- Use your genetic information to make decisions about hiring, firing, promotion, or pay
- Request, require, or purchase your genetic information (with a few specific exceptions)
