[ #5244 ]
Dear Log,

«[The US] employment opportunities commission recently settled a case against the Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railway Company for $2.2m, where the firm had genetically tested employees without their consent or knowledge. The test was included in a medical examination and was designed to find out whether the employees had the genetic marker for carpel tunnel syndrome. The employers wanted the information to defend against compensation claims for repetitive strain injuries.»
