Danville Airlines Paper
Read the case study “Danville Airlines” and write a paper. To address the following questions.
1.Discuss the issue of genetic testing and screening. What are the benefits and the drawbacks of genetic testing? Specifically, what were they for Reiger?
2.Assume it is technically legal for Danville to test Reiger without his consent. Did Danville have a right to do so? Why or why not?
3.Assume it was illegal. How does that change your answer?
4.Now, assume that Danville’s attorneys say the law is ambiguous, and that fighting a lawsuit would be expensive. How does that change your answer?
5.Discuss Reiger’s situation in light of (a) the 1974 Privacy Act, (b) The Heath Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, and (c) the 1990 Americans With Disabilities Act.
6.Does the knowledge that Reiger lost his father to Huntington’s disease and that he has a 90-percent chance of developing the same condition make a difference in your decision?
7.What recommendations should Julie Taylor make?
