Frank Morris Quoted in “Employer Groups Don’t See Eye to Eye on EEOC Wellness Plan Ruling”Bloomberg BNA Pension & Benefits Daily September 22, 2016
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 Bloomberg BNA Pension & Benefits Daily, in "Employer Groups Don't See Eye to Eye on EEOC Wellness Plan Ruling," by Carmen Castro-Pagan.
Following is an excerpt:
Frank C. Morris, an employee benefits attorney at Epstein Becker Green in Washington, D.C., agrees. "This is a classic split decision," Morris said. Orion "scored a big win" since the court found that its wellness program didn't violate the ADA because it was voluntary despite the fact that not participating in it would mean that an employee would have to pay 100 percent of the health-care premiums, Morris told Bloomberg BNA Sept. 22.
