EEOC Challenging Employer Wellness Programs

The EEOC has announced it is suing an employer over its employee wellness program, alleging that the manner in which the program was operated violated the ADA.  In particular, the EEOC alleges that participation was mandatory, and required "medical examinations" and made medical "inquiries" of employees.  EEOC alleges that when one employee objected, she was made to pay the full cost of her medical benefits, and later was fired.
