The EEOC’s New Wellness Regulations: Another Layer of Confusion Tuesday, August 9, 2016 2:00 p.m. ET / 11:00 a.m. PT

The EEOC recently issued two final rules governing how the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) apply to employee wellness programs. Important differences between the treatment of wellness programs in the regulations issued by the EEOC and those issued by the Department of Labor (DOL) make the task of designing compliant wellness programs more complicated. This webinar will cover the new regulations, including heightened scrutiny around wellness programs that involve health risk assessments or biomedical screenings.

This webinar will:

  • Explain the EEOC’s final wellness regulations
  • Explain the differences between the EEOC’s new wellness rules and those issued under ERISA, and what this means for employers
  • Discuss the heightened scrutiny over wellness programs that involve biomedical screenings or health risk assessments
  • Discuss the impact of regulations that only allow employers to obtain results of health risk assessments or biomedical screenings on an aggregate level
  • Discuss the EEOC’s view of the ADA “safe harbor” language
  • Provide tips for 2017 benefit plan design

This 60-minute basic webinar will help employers get up to date on the EEOC’s new wellness regulations. The presentation will be posted on the UBA website the day before the webinar.
