Complimentary Webinar to Review Recent Legal Issues with Wellness Programs

Join Richard Moon and Chris Lockman on Thursday, November 20, from 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. for a complimentary webinar that will provide a general overview of the final wellness program regulations and recent EEOC litigation attacking certain wellness programs. The DOL, HHS, and the Treasury Department have released detailed guidance explaining how wellness programs may be designed and operated in a manner that satisfies the nondiscrimination requirements of HIPAA. Even an employer that has adhered to these regulations, however, may not be insulated from EEOC enforcement activity and lawsuits brought under the ADA, Title VII, or GINA. Recent litigation commenced by the EEOC brings these issues to the fore. Richard and Chris will explain the current state of affairs regarding wellness programs and offer recommendations for employers who wish to maintain compliant wellness programs while managing their exposure under the ADA, Title VII, and GINA.
