Tracking employee health metrics: Great idea or big mistake?
MARCH 9, 2017
Some wellness programs ask employees to volunteer information, such as whether they smoke or exercise. A word of caution: Be careful about implementing wellness programs that require participation, or penalize employees who are unable to participate. If not designed correctly, these wellness programs can violate federal laws such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
