EmployerLINC Webinar: Employee Wellness on a Shoestring Budget

In an effort to help control spiraling health care costs, employers are increasingly turning to company-sponsored wellness programs that have demonstrated the positive effect of personal health and fitness on the bottom line. At the same time, these wellness programs are subject to a number of federal and state laws that regulate their design and implementation. 

During this one-hour webinar, employee benefits attorney Bill Freudenrich and employment attorney Charlie Plumb will be joined by guest speaker Todd Neaves, president of PremierSource, an employee benefits and risk management consulting firm, to discuss how employers can implement a simple, enforceable workplace wellness program that is affordable and that adeptly navigates the regulatory minefield that can get employers in trouble.

Topics include:

  • Avoiding the legal pitfalls associated with smoking-cessation and weight management programs
  • How the ADA impacts wellness programs, including health risk assessments and what conditions can or cannot be targeted
  • Adding incentives for offering and participating in wellness programs
  • How to provide incentives to employees without violating HIPAA’s nondiscrimination rules
  • How financial incentives may potentially face legal challenges and how you can avoid them
  • What you can expect under the health care reform law, rules and regulations
