Protected Health Information and Health Care Plan Design
Porter Wright Morris & Arthur LLP Link to more items from this source
Mar. 17, 2014
"An employee who is disciplined or reassigned, who has an hours reduction, or who has been terminated from employment, now has a lengthy list of potential discrimination claims. Further, an assortment of federal government agencies now has additional enforcement tools. Therefore, we encourage employers maintaining health care plans to take a time out to consider how they will defend against this new breed of claims. Taking proactive steps, like shoring up that imaginary line between the health care plan and employment decisions makers if at all possible, will reduce the time and expense otherwise required to defend against these claims."
