The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) intends to hold a public meeting next week to address the interplay between employee wellness programs and various federal equal employment opportunity laws. Several panelists will discuss how implementing wellness programs could raise issues under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA), and other EEOC-enforced statutes.

The meeting will take place on Wednesday, May 8, 2013, at 9:00 a.m., Eastern Time, in the Commission Meeting Room on the First Floor of the EEOC Office Building, 131 "M" Street, NE, Washington, D.C. 20507. Individuals wishing to attend the public meeting should arrive at least 30 minutes in advance due to seating limitations.
