EEOC’s Final Rules on Wellness Programs: Is Your Program Compliant

Tuesday, June 28 | 2:00-3:15 p.m. ET

This is a free webinar. Registration is required for participation.

If your institution has or is considering a wellness program that uses health risk assessments, medical questionnaires and/or biometric screenings to determine the health risk factors of employees, new regulations from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) could have an impact on the design of your program.

On May 16, 2016, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued final regulations governing the treatment of wellness programs under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA). However, the EEOC final rules, which will go into effect in 2017, are not entirely aligned with the regulations issued by the Department of Labor implementing provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). These differences make the task of designing compliant wellness programs more complex. During this webinar, you’ll learn the details of the EEOC’s final wellness regulations and what they mean for employers and their wellness programs.
