Employee Wellness Programs and the New Rules under the ADA and GINA
July 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm$159
Key Take Away
In this webinar, we will discuss what an Employee Wellness Program is, the different types of Employee Wellness Programs and the different laws and regulations that come into play.
Does your company offer an Employee Wellness Program? Employee wellness programs, if done correctly can be a win-win for employers, employees, and safety professionals, insurance carriers…well the list goes on! Conversely, if your company’s wellness program is not set up correctly it can spell trouble for you, no matter how well-meaning you may have been in setting up that program. Why is that? First if your Wellness Program is connected to a Group Health Insurance Plan, you will probably have requirements you must meet under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). But that’s not all. The EEOC in May issued final rules regarding the impact of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Genetic Information Non-discrimination Act (GINA).
