EEOC Issues Final Rules on Employer Wellness Programs

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has issued final rules clarifying how Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Title II of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) apply to employer wellness programs.

The final rules remain fairly consistent with the 2015 proposed rules however they provide much needed clarification and additional guidance necessary to ensure employers structure their wellness programs without violating the ADA or GINA.
