Jill S. Vorobiev, Chicago-based member in Dykema’s Labor and Employment practice, authored the article, “EEOC proposes new rules for employer wellness programs,” which appears in the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin.

In the article Vorobiev discusses the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) notice of proposed rulemaking addressing the applicability of Title I of the (Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to employer wellness programs that are part of a group health plan. She points out that the proposed rule would amend the regulations and interpretative guidance on the extent to which employers may use incentives to encourage employees to participate in wellness programs that include disability-related inquiries and medical examinations.

Vorobiev also touches on what makes a wellness program voluntary and the collection of medical information.
