EEOC law suits add to employer confusion about legality of wellness programs
from Human Resource Executive Online
When the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission recently sued a third employer in the current year for its wellness program, the result put HR leaders on notice. If you have a program in place or are thinking about starting a wellness program, confusion is sure to follow. According to legal experts and other interested observers, the EEOC's legal actions, based on violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act, are in direct conflict with the Affordable Care Act, which encourages wellness programs for American workers.
