EEOC Issues Notice Indicating it May Issue Proposed Revised ADA Rule in June 2019

On October 17, 2018, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued notice RIN 3046-AB10 and RIN 3046-AB11 indicating its timetable for promulgating proposed rules under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Genetic Information Discrimination Act (GINA). Specifically, the EEOC indicated that it may issue proposed rules under the ADA regarding workplace wellness incentives by June 2019. These proposed rules would revise the ADA wellness incentive rules (originally issued in May 2016) “based on the court’s order, as well as the statutory requirement to issue regulations to implement title I of the ADA.” See, e.g., RIN 3046-AB10.
