Description:

February is American Heart Month, so it’s a great time to commit to healthy lifestyle changes and to encourage your employees to do the same.

You can encourage employees to participate in a wellness program, reduce health insurance costs for those who do participate, and/or set aside time during the workday for employees to participate. In addition, employers are allowed to offer other incentives, including financial (gift cards, insurance premium discounts, or additional time off).

But you need to tread carefully to make sure you don’t run afoul of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or the nondiscrimination rules of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

There are also legal considerations to be aware of under the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA), the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), and the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

How can you ensure that you’re creating a healthy, productive culture in the workplace, without running afoul of applicable laws?

Join us to find out. Dr. Judd Allen, president of the Human Resources Institute, and benefits attorney Callan G. Carter will offer valuable insights on health and wellness in the workplace to ensure that your program is both effective and legally compliant.

Learning Objectives:

  • The various benefits of implementing an employee wellness program, including financial, morale-related, and more
  • Ways to model healthy lifestyle choices for the workplace
  • How to implement programs and incentives that encourage healthy habits without creating legal risks for your company under the ADA, GINA, and other federal employment laws
  • What a climate of support for a healthy workplace culture looks like
  • Examples of training and information around health issues to share with your employees
  • How to offer incentives or on-site programs that promote health
  • Common legal missteps under the ADA, GINA, HIPAA, and ERISA—and how to avoid those legal pitfalls
  • How to tell if your voluntary wellness programs are truly voluntary
  • Best practices for ensuring compliance under the ACA—and possible wellness-related changes to the ACA that could be coming after Trump takes office
  • Tips for communicating your wellness programs to employees without overstepping the legal bounds

This presentation is also available in a recorded format, in On-Demand version, as shown in the pricing options below.

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.
