Designing Your Wellness Plan to Avoid Enforcement Action and Litigation Risks
|Date / Time:
The EEOC has brought several enforcement actions against employers based on their wellness plans. In addition, the DOL has increased its enforcement and review of wellness plans. In June 2013, the IRS, DOL, and HHS issued new HIPAA nondiscrimination regulations governing wellness plans. These regulations make significant changes and clarifications to the prior regulations. While implementing the provision in health care reform allowing for greater incentives, the regulations also impose a number of new requirements on wellness plan design.
This course will review the EEOC and DOL enforcement actions and regulatory developments. It also provides an overview of the statutes, case law, and other requirements of wellness plans. This webinar is a must for those who advise employers on wellness plans and policies designed to promote a healthier workplace.

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
