Regulations.gov – Proposed Rule Document

Do you know whether heartburn pills are safe for long-term use?

Bureaucrats_at_workThe Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) not too long ago sued major employers over their wellness programs. This annoyed the large business groups that traded their support of the Affordable Care Act for the right to stick it to their workers (literally) with oppressive, punitive, intrusive, and, ultimately, worthless wellness programs. So, the business groups, such as the Business Roundtable, pressured the White House and the Congress, who, in turn, hammered the EEOC for, well, fulfilling its statutory responsibilities. So, now, the EEOC is proposing regs that will give businesses the cover they need to continue poking, prodding, punishing and prying (into) their workers.

You can, however, help to make the case that this over-the-top bureaucratic protectionism of a failed industry and failed strategy is the wrong direction for the country to take. Al and I have submitted our comment this morning.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC” or “Commission”) is issuing a proposed rule that would amend the regulations and interpretive guidance implementing Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as they relate to employer wellness programs.
