EEOC Issues Wellness Program Regulations

The EEOC will issue proposed regulations for Wellness Programs today.  The proposed rules address how Wellness Programs interact with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  They do not address how such plans interact with the Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act (GINA).  HH&K previously reported in its March 2015 newsletter on 3 lawsuits filed by the EEOC over Wellness Plans.  The EEOC announcement of the proposed regulations along with a link to the text of the regulations is available here:  http://www.eeoc.gov/laws/regulations/qanda_nprm_wellness.cfm.  It is not clear what, if any, effect the proposed regulations will have on the pending lawsuits.
