Court Denies EEOC Request for TRO in Wellness Lawsuit
Jackson Lewis LLP Link to more items from this source
Nov. 4, 2014
"[On Monday, Nov. 3], Judge Montgomery asked the EEOC the question the corporate wellness world has been waiting for much more than a decade to ask: 'At what point does a monetary penalty result in a compulsion?' The EEOC responded that the agency cannot draw a clear line but that Honeywell had crossed it. At least three times during the oral argument, the Court pressed the EEOC to define the point at which voluntary wellness plan becomes involuntary because of the penalties involved. Each time, the EEOC responded that it cannot draw a line but that Honeywell had crossed it." [EEOC v. Honeywell Int'l Inc., No. 14-cv-04517-ADM-TNL (D. Minn., petition filed Oct. 27, 2014)]
