EEOC Proposed Wellness Rules: Game Changer?
On January 7, 2021, the EEOC released its proposed rules for Participatory wellness programs. The Biden Administration has since implemented a freeze of the regulations pending further review and alignment of priorities. If implemented, these rules will have a significant impact on most employer wellness programs by regulating incentives for certain wellness activities. Unless significantly changed by the new Administration, most participation-based wellness program incentives will need to be changed dramatically.
