EEOC RIN: 3046-AB11 Publication ID: Spring 2018 
Title: Amendments to Regulations Under the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 
Abstract:

This rule amends the regulations on the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA) to address wellness programs. On August 22, 2017, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ordered the EEOC to reconsider its regulations under GINA related to incentives and employer-sponsored wellness plans. See AARP v. EEOC, Civ. Action No. 16-2113 (D.D.C. Aug. 22, 2017).  In accordance with the court’s ruling, the EEOC will consider and take actions to cure defects in the rule.  The final rule was published on May 17, 2016 (81 FR 31143) and completed in the fall 2016 agenda as RIN 3046-AB02. The new NPRM is projected for January 2019.
