EEOC Issues 'Sample' Wellness Program Notice
EEOC publishes sample notice to help businesses offering employer-sponsored wellness plans to comply with employee notice rules.
Employers with “wellness plans” understand the concern of running afoul of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act, not to mention “HIPAA” (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act).
Well, help is now available from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which recently issued a sample notice for employer sponsored wellness programs.
New rules published on May 17, 2016, under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), require employers that offer wellness programs to inform employees about what information will be collected, how it will be used, who will receive it, and what will be done to keep it confidential.
