Compliance Bulletin: Court Vacates EEOC’s Wellness Rules for 2019




On December 20, 2017, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia vacated key provisions of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) final rules for employer-sponsored wellness plans. However, to avoid disruption to employers, the court stayed its ruling until Jan. 1, 2019. It is possible that the EEOC will issue new wellness rules prior to 2019, so employers should continue to monitor any developments related to the EEOC’s rules. This Compliance Bulletin summarizes the court’s ruling and provides action steps for employers.
