Final Regulations on Wellness Programs Take Effect: An Interview with Adam C. SolanderEmployment Law This Week January 16, 2017
Employment Law This Week (Episode 55: Week of January 16, 2017) has released bonus footage of its interview with Adam C. Solander, a Member of the Firm at Epstein Becker Green.
As Mr. Solander discusses, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC’s) final rule on wellness programs will go into effect, despite a challenge from the AARP. The new regulations state that an employer may require medical examinations or information as part of a wellness program that provides discounts of 30% or less on the cost of health care coverage. The AARP sought a preliminary injunction to block the regulations, arguing that they violate the privacy of its members. The motion was denied, but a permanent injunction remains a possible outcome as the litigation continues.
