Please contact us if you have been required to provide family health history by an Illinois employer. Certain employers require physical exams, in the course of which a medical history is taken not only of employees but their families. Asking for family history of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and other conditions which are genetically transmitted may violate the Genetic Information Privacy Act in Illinois.
