Wellness Programs: Legal Considerations and Compliance Strategies
Frank C. Morris, Jr., Member of the Firm, presents "Wellness Programs: Legal Considerations and Compliance Strategies," a webinar hosted by C4CM.com.
Are your wellness plans on the right side of the law?
Wellness plans are an integral part of today’s workplace. In fact, close to 60% of U.S. companies now offer some kind of wellness initiative, up from just 36% in 2009.
They offer obvious benefits to the employee—better health—and benefits to the employer—lower costs and reduced absenteeism. It seems like a win-win for everyone. But there are a host of legal issues to be aware of:
- Privacy rights
- Discrimination liability
- Tax surprises
- Federal regulations; ADA, ACA, HIPAA, ERISA, GINA, FMLA, and FLSA
This information-packed webinar uncovers the compliance challenges that wellness programs face, and explores how you can structure your plan to be compliant with EEOC concerns about workers’ privacy and the border between voluntary and compulsory participation.
