Forget carrots and sticks - a recent ruling against the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) may have serious legal implications for your wellness program. In 2016, the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) brought a lawsuit against the EEOC stating that the EEOC’s wellness incentive rule did not meet the requirements under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA). The court ruled in favor of the AARP, stating that employer-sponsored wellness incentives may no longer rely on the ADA and GINA safe harbors of 30% of the total cost of self-only coverage effective Jan. 1, 2019.  This means that employers will face uncertainty when incentivizing employee participation in health risk assessments or biometric screens.  This webinar will discuss what the AARP case means for workplace wellness and what workplace wellness program designers can do to stay compliant with the ADA and GINA. 

This webinar led by Barbara Zabawa, JD, MPH and Attorney/President of the Center for Health and Wellness Law, LLC, will discuss:

  • Background on the AARP v. EEOC lawsuit and Wellness Compliance.
  • How the case affects employers and existing wellness programs.
  • What can employers expect without being able to predict the future. 
  • How to move forward with various incentive options and the associated risks.
