The federal government believes wellness programs can cut healthcare costs and decrease the cost of employer-sponsored health insurance by promoting health and preventing disease. The new federal regulations have divided wellness programs into two types with specific rules for each. A major piece of the regulations addresses the issue of employee discrimination based on health/disability, age, gender and other protected classes. The U. S. Department of Labor, the Treasury, and Health and Human Services regulations require that regardless of the type of wellness program, every individual participating should be able to receive the full amount of any reward or incentive, regardless of any health factor. Specific regulations have been created to prevent employee discrimination in wellness programs.Why you must attend:
