The downside for employees obviously is that this is an invasion of their privacy.  It could also lead to discrimination against those who might test positive for certain genetic traits.

I worked for a retailer and was a Plaintiff in a class action for unpaid overtime wages. Hayber, McKenna & Dinsmore did an amazing job of getting our unpaid overtime back to us. Every one at the firm that I dealt with through that process was wonderful to work with. I appreciate all they did for us more than you will ever know.
