In wellness news:

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced that it has completed a set of rule revisions to address practical conflicts in the regulations governing the use of financial incentives in workplace wellness programs. The Commission voted Friday to begin the process of filing for public comment in the Federal Register. According to the notice issued by the EEOC, the proposed rule “would amend the regulations implementing the equal employment provisions of the ADA to address the interaction between Title I of the ADA and financial incentives as part of wellness programs offered through group health plans.” The employer community has been awaiting such new rules in light of several high-profile discrimination lawsuits brought by the EEOC against employers like Honeywell.
