GINA and wellness programs

Last year, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission proposed new rules for voluntary wellness programs under GINA, including when an employer can offer an incentive for completing a health risk assessment or biometric screen that collects information about the current or past health status of an employee and their spouse.

At AWC, we are committed to arming our member cities with the tools to design effective and compliant wellness programs. We partnered with Kiran Griffith at Stoel Rives LLP to publish the article, Assessing the Health of Your Wellness Program Under HIPAA, the ADA, and GINA. Learn more about how key federal laws like GINA could impact your wellness programs, and identify the steps that you can take to ensure that your programs are in compliance. View pages 13–18 for information about GINA and how the new EEOC proposed rules might impact you.
