EEOC Proposed Rule: Health and Wellness Programs

EEOC Proposed Rule: Health and Wellness Programs

We recently wrote an informative blog post Wellness Programs: FAQs and Proposed Rules that outlines guidelines to be followed if a Wellness Program asks employees to answer disability-related questions, or asks an employee to participate in a medical examination. Coinciding with this blog article, SHRM recently published the Assessing the Health of Wellness Program under EEOC Proposed Rule by Kara M. Maciel. The SHRM article goes into detail regarding recent litigation for alleged non-compliance issues  – specifically those relating to how an employer should implement a Wellness Program so that it also complies with ADA. We remind our readers of several FAQs, Press Releases, and other useful quick links for in-depth, concise information on this subject.
