Overview of the EEOC NPRM "Application of the ADA to Employer Wellness Programs"

Tuesday, May 19, 2015


On April 20, 2015, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC or the Commission) issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on how Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) applies to employer wellness programs that are part of a group health plan. The NPRM proposes changes both to the text of the EEOC's ADA regulations and to interpretive guidance explaining the regulations that will be published along with the final rule. The deadline for submitting comments regarding the NPRM is June 19, 2015. Join this session to receive more detail about the proposed changes and engage in a dialog with a representative from EEOC.
