Reasonable accommodations for wellness programs under the ADA
  • A wellness program must provide reasonable accommodations that enable employees with disabilities to participate and earn offered incentives.

Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), employers must provide reasonable accommodations that enable employees with disabilities to participate and earn whatever incentives the employer offers. For example:

  • An employer that offers an incentive for employees to attend a nutrition class must, absent undue hardship, provide a sign language interpreter for a deaf employee who needs one to participate in the class.
  • An employer also may need to provide materials related to a wellness program in an alternate format, such as large print or Braille, for someone with vision impairment.
  • An employer may need to provide an alternative to a blood test if an employee's disability would make drawing blood dangerous.
