EEOC Rules on Wellness Programs Further Limit Employer Design Options
Seyfarth Shaw LLPLink to more items from this source
[Guidance Overview]
Apr. 19, 2015

"[T]he EEOC's proposed rules rejected the clear safe harbor contained in the ADA for wellness programs established as a part of a bona fide benefit plan. Despite the significance of this shift, the EEOC limits its discussion of the ADA benefit plan safe harbor to a footnote. It simply says that wellness programs are 'medical examinations' and thus must be 'voluntary.' The EEOC, by so doing, appears to disregard the benefit plan safe harbor under the ADA."
