The Justice Department filed an agreement with the Federal Court in New Jersey, to resolve its lawsuit against the Port Authority Trans-Hudson Corporation (PATH), under the ADA and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA). The agreement ends PATH’s practice of asking for unnecessary medical and disability information from its workers, and documents PATH’s commitment to strengthening ADA and GINA protections for its workers. Under the terms of the agreement, which must be approved by the Court, PATH has agreed to stop unnecessary medical exams, train its staff on the ADA and GINA, and pay a total of $100,000 to certain employees who were harmed by PATH’s exams and inquiries.
