Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (``EEOC'' or ``Commission'') is issuing a proposed rule that would amend the regulations implementing Title II of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 as they relate to employer wellness programs. The proposed regulations address the extent to which an employer may offer an employee inducements for the employee's spouse who is also a participant in the employer's health plan to provide information about the spouse's current or past health status as part of a health risk assessment administered in connection with the employer's offer of health services as part of an employer-sponsored wellness program. Several technical changes to the existing regulation are also proposed.
Apprenticeship Programs; Corrections
The EEOC is correcting a cross-reference in its regulation concerning the procedures for requesting an exemption for apprenticeship programs from the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) pursuant to Section 9 of the Act.
