EEOC Wellness Incentive Rules

Tuesday, March 24 / 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

In preparation for the anticipated changes to EEOC wellness incentive rules, our speaker Barbara J. Zabawa, JD, MPH, President of the Center for Health and Wellness Law, LLC will present an hour long webinar on the latest developments, an overview of wellness incentive laws and how to apply those laws in specific situations.  Barbara is a frequent writer and speaker on health and wellness law topics, having presented for national organizations such as WELCOA, National Wellness Conference, HPLive, Healthstat University and HERO. 

Join us to learn what to expect from the EEOC proposed wellness incentive rules under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA).  Barbara will discuss recent cases brought against employee wellness programs and how organizations can reduce their legal risks with wellness programs and related incentives.  She’ll clarify the difference between group health plan and non-group health plan wellness programs when viewed from a legal perspective and why that’s an important distinction. Through case studies and question/answer sessions, attendees will be able to apply legal concepts to employee wellness program scenarios. Be sure to join us for this timely topic.

We look forward to having you in our webinar and hope to see you at an in-person event soon! If you have any questions, please email programs@wwcma.org.
