Involuntary Employee Wellness Program
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed a lawsuit challenging a new health and wellness program at Honeywell International that imposes monetary penalties if employees and their spouses do not take various biometric tests. The program mandates up to $4,000 in surcharges and lost contributions to employees’ health plans unless they and their spouses take blood and medical tests that can identify smoking, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, and other health problems. The EEOC claims that the program violates the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act.
