ABSTRACT
The article discusses New York's genetic discrimination statute and the viability of genetic testing in the sports employment context. Human Genome Project distinguishes the human genes with a goal to understand the genetic makeup of a person. Society has already acknowledged the dangers of unrestricted access to genetic information and the need for increased protection against genetic discrimination. Genetic testing aiding employment decisions are being implemented in sports creating discrimination.
