This webinar training with explain how to create an effective worksite wellness policy. The Instructor will discuss an overview of HIPAA, ADA, ACA, GINA, ERISA and more. He will also cover the EEOC’s new rules and how to be compliant while implementing wellness program at your workplace.

Why Should You Attend:

Does your company offer an Employee Wellness Program? Employee wellness programs, if done correctly can be a win-win for employers, employees, and safety professionals, insurance carrier and other parties involved. Conversely, if your company’s wellness program is not set up correctly it can spell trouble for you, no matter how well-meaning you may have been in setting up that program. Why is that? First if your Wellness Program is connected to a Group Health Insurance Plan, you will probably have requirements you must meet under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). But that’s not all. The EEOC in May issued final rules regarding the impact of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA).

Join us in this training and learn how to set up your Employee Wellness Program to get the maximum benefit and avoid the pitfalls.
