Genetic issues are one of the most important challenges of human life and medical science. Nowadays despite developments in genetics this issue, still, is exposed to wide legal challenges which should be investigated in legal system framework of every country from different aspects. Two of these important challenges in this field are related issues to insurance and employment. Since genetic information has been changed to a pretext for insurance companies and employers who see themselves as beneficiary to receive exorbitant insurance costs and not recruit individuals in different job opportunities. The advent of such problems has made legislators to impose some regulations to interfere such problems. It should be noted that genetic information involves not only disease but also all human abilities. Hence such information should be kept confidentially otherwise it will bear unsuitable consequences.
