On May 16, 2016, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) released the final wellness plan regulations under Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) and under Title II of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (“GINA”). The regulations contain new notice requirements and financial inducement rules that  apply generally to plan years beginning on or after January 1, 2017.

The final regulations describe how employer wellness programs can comply with the EEOC’s interpretation of the ADA and GINA. But the regulations do not align with existing HIPAA wellness plan rules. Seyfarth attorneys will explore the EEOC final regulations and in particular how they treat employer incentive-based wellness programs.

The Seyfarth panel will address the following topics:

  • What do the EEOC final rules say?
  • How do these rules fit into the complex web of laws governing wellness programs?
  • What is the significance of recent court decisions casting doubt on the EEOC’s interpretation of the ADA?
