4 reasons to welcome the EEOC wellness rules
(August 11, 2016)
Interactive Health President and CEO Cathy Kenworthy recently contributed an article to BenefitsPRO that highlights positive aspects of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) finalized rules on workplace wellness programs. The piece covers the importance of clarity, privacy requirements, the use of incentives and how to ensure a wellness program is reasonably designed.
“In our view, though, the EEOC’s final rules are a strongly positive development, reinforcing the efficacy of well-designed programs and providing clarity to both employers and employees on where the EEOC stands on essential issues such as privacy, incentives and program guidelines. This creates a win-win situation that results in strong workplace wellness programs and healthier workplaces and employees,” Kenworthy wrote.
