This Week’s Podcast: Podcast Episode 22: D.C. Court Decision on EEOC’s ADA and GINA Wellness Regulations

In Episode 22, Chase Cannon and Suzanne Spradley break down the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia’s decision to vacate the EEOC’s wellness program regulations, which relate to the ADA and GINA and their impact on rewards offered under employer wellness programs. The two provide an overview of the regulations, the types of wellness programs to which the ADA and GINA might apply, the challenge to the EEOC’s rules that led to the lawsuit, and the court’s ruling on the matter. Chase also prognosticates over what the ruling could mean for the EEOC, which must now regroup and publish new regulations within a year (or risk having the current regulations invalidated). The two conclude the episode with a recap of what it all means for employers and wellness programs in 2018 and beyond.
