(July 20, 2016)
Interactive Health President and CEO Cathy Kenworthy recently contributed to a Gibbons Employment Law Alert post regarding the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) finalized rules on workplace wellness programs. The post explains how employers can ensure that their wellness programs comply with Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) and Title II of the Genetic Information Nondisclosure Act (“GINA”).
“In reviewing or designing any program, the substantive and important goal is to have a credible line of sight to improving health and preventing disease. A healthy workforce is smart business for employers, and now an even more achievable goal.”
