|Text of EEOC FAQs on Proposed Regs for the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act and Incentives in Employer Wellness Programs|
U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission [EEOC]
Oct. 30, 2015
13 Q&As, including: "Why did EEOC issue this NPRM? ... What does the proposed rule do? ... How much of an incentive may an employer offer? ... How do the incentive levels described [in this FAQ] compare with permissible incentives for information on current and past health status under other laws, such as the [ADA], [HIPAA], the [ACA], and Title I of GINA? ... Why did the EEOC make this change to a straightforward rule that prohibited incentives in exchange for genetic information? ... Why doesn't the NPRM allow employers to offer incentives for information about the current or past health status of employees' children who participate in wellness programs that are part of a group health plan? ... What should employers do to make sure they comply with GINA before the final rule is published in the Federal Register? ... Did the EEOC coordinate with DOL, HHS, and IRS-the agencies that issued the regulations on wellness program incentives under HIPAA ... when developing this proposed GINA rule? ... Has EEOC provided any other guidance to employers about wellness programs and whether incentives can be offered as part of such programs?"
