Frank C. Morris, Jr., a Member of the Firm in the Litigation and Employee Benefits practices, in the firm’s Washington, DC, office, was quoted in SHRM.org, in “EEOC Ordered to Reconsider Wellness Rules,” by Allen Smith.

Following is an excerpt:

“The EEOC’s regulations were helpful to employers because they finally resolved the long-pending question of what EEOC would consider to be a permissible incentive under ADA [Americans with Disabilities Act] and GINA [Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act],” said Frank Morris Jr., an attorney with Epstein Becker Green in Washington, D.C. “This permitted employers who wanted to use incentives to design [them] with reasonable certainty that they would be lawful under the two statutes.”
