New York Times’ Natasha Singer reports today that Rep. Louise M. Slaughter (D-NY) has asked the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to investigate employer wellness programs that seek intimate health information, like Penn State’s program, and to issue guidelines preventing employers from using such programs to discriminate against workers.  The EEOC held a hearing on employer wellness programs in May, 2013.
