On April 16, 2015, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) published its highly anticipated notice of proposed rulemaking addressing how the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) applies to some employer wellness programs.

Members of the public have until June 19, 2015, to comment on the proposed rule, which is available here.
