Discrimination Sub-Question 1

Question: 
Should employers be allowed to use genomic information to make hiring or firing decisions?
Yes Rationale: 
This information might help employers improve public safety. For example, in the future it might help predict whether pilots have a genetic risk for seizures.
No Rationale: 
Employers should judge employees on their skills and performance, not genomic information.
Maybe Rationale: 
Only in cases when the information reveals a potential risk that is very serious and outweighs the harm of job discrimination.
