Prepare for new wellness plan notifications

Wellness programs, when provided as a fringe benefit as part of a cafeteria plan, can benefit both your company and your employees. But you may be collecting information about your employees that is regulated by several federal statutes, including rules on confidentiality and nondiscrimination. Beginning in January 2017, you’ll need to provide your employees with a notice stating what information you collect, and how it will be used, along with other details.
