Sarah Bassler Millar Q&A Published in Reuters

An interview with Chicago partner Sarah Bassler Millar titled, “Q&A: Despite EEOC Guidelines, Questions Remain on Wellness Programs,” was published by Reuters.

The article followed the release of long-awaited proposed regulations from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), which said that companies can levy financial penalties on employees who choose not to participate in wellness programs without violating the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The regulations did not, however, advise on how other federal laws apply to wellness programs, for example the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Sarah said that while the guidance was necessary and helpful, it would be more helpful to have one standard to apply to both the ADA and ACA. She predicted that this would be one of the key themes from the business community during the 60-day public comment period.
