radioactive-147921_1280We are very pleased to have Judy Feder of Georgetown and Sam Bagenstos of Michigan join us in questioning the validity, integrity, logic, and privacy invasion behind workplace wellness programs.

Wellness programs that actually help people improve their health are a good thing. But privacy and protecting workers from job-based discrimination are good things too. Corporations and politicians should take care not to invoke ‘wellness’ in ways that weaken important civil rights protections and give employers license to snoop around in our medical records and our private lives. That would most definitely be bad for our health.
