Employee Wellness Program Regulations: How to Protect the Individual and Promote Health and Wellbeing
Founder & CEO, Bravo Wellness
The EEOC safe harbor protecting the use of 30 percent of premium for wellness incentives that are tied to an exam and disability-related questions has officially been vacated. In a nation where health risks and chronic conditions are the norm, not the exception, we can see that the wellness industry is seeking a balance between protecting employee privacy and promoting wellbeing. Join this session to learn the latest information as the EEOC prepares new regulations to employer health promotion programs and what employers can do in the interim to inspire personal improvement in their populations. Session attendees will walk away with before-and-after comprehensive health promotion program designs to guide their wellness program strategy, interventions and incentives.
