EEOC challenges Honeywell's wellness program penalties

AHIP Wellness SmartBrief | Oct 29, 2014

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is challenging Honeywell's use of monetary penalties for employees and spouses who do not get biometric testing, saying it violates the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act. Honeywell said its wellness program is in compliance with federal laws, but EEOC attorney Laurie Vasichek said the provisions go too far because they are not job-related or consistent with business necessity.
