Title:

Final EEOC Rules On Wellness Programs: Strategies For A Structuring Compliant, Effective Plan Ahead Of The Effective Date

SKU:WC-1021739
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar
Description:

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has released final rules that affect how you structure your wellness programs. For instance, the rules describe how the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) apply to wellness programs that request employees’ or spouses’ health information.

The reach of these rules is broad. The EEOC says the rules will apply to all workplace wellness programs, including ones where employees or their family members participate without being enrolled in particular health plans. That means you should act now to ensure that your wellness plans and health promotion practices don’t run afoul of these rules, which take effect in 2017.

Join us for an in-depth webinar when attorney Jonathan Mook, a nationally recognized authority on the ADA and Ron Z. Goetzel, PhD, a nationally known and widely published expert in health and productivity management—will teach you how to ensure that your wellness plan design is effective at promoting a culture of health among your workforce, without causing legal headaches under the ADA, GINA, or other federal laws.

Learning Objectives

  • The new compliance obligations the EEOC’s final rules concerning the ADA and GINA impose on workplace wellness programs, and the rules’ effective date

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

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.

The live 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.
