EEOC RIN: 3046-AB11 Publication ID: Spring 2019 
Title: Amendments to Regulations Under the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 
Abstract:

This rule amends the regulations to address wellness programs under the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA), which had been published as a final rule on May 17, 2016, (81 FR 31143) and completed in the fall 2016 agenda as RIN 3046-AB02.  On August 22, 2017, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ordered the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to reconsider its May 17, 2016, final rule on employer-sponsored wellness plans under GINA. See AARP v. EEOC, 267 F. Supp. 3d 14 (D.D.C. 2017). In accordance with the court's ruling, the EEOC rescinded portions of its GINA wellness rule on December 20, 2018. (83 FR 65296). EEOC staff is now developing an NPRM to address wellness programs under GINA in response to the court's ruling.
