The article reports that a recent Florida court case affirms employers' ability to surcharge workers who don't participate in wellness programs as it was found by the court that the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibition does not apply to a wellness program where it meets the ADA's safe harbor for bona fide benefit plans. As reported, health care reform in the U.S. will increase allowable wellness incentives in 2014.
