Recent AARP correspondence to lawmakers and regulators:
January 2016: AARP sent a comment letter to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) concerning wellness programs. AARP has consistently and actively participated in policy discussions by the EEOC regarding the application of the civil rights laws to wellness programs, including by filing extensive comments in response to the EEOC’s recently proposed regulations changing the treatment of wellness programs under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Now, the EEOC is proposing substantial changes in its treatment of wellness programs under the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA). AARP appreciates this opportunity to offer our comments on this important issue. (PDF).
