Chicago partner Sarah Millar and associate Erik Vogt wrote an article for BenefitsPro titled “6 Common Legal Pitfalls for Wellness Programs.” Sarah and Erik outline common mistakes plan sponsors make in establishing and administering wellness programs, and offer proactive action items to help sponsors avoid these issues.

Sarah and Erik note that these legal errors all relate to federal laws, such as ERISA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) – and that failure to comply with these laws can result in government enforcement action, litigation and tax penalties.
