Final Rules on Employer Wellness Programs
Final rules were issued in May 2016 that describe how Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Title II of the Genetic Information
Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) apply to wellness programs. In October 2016, EEOC held a webinar to discuss the new rules. A recording
of that session is now available.
