More Carrot, Less Stick: Workplace Wellness Programs & The Discriminatory Impact Of Financial And Health-Based Incentives, Emily Koruda 2016 Boston College Law School

More Carrot, Less Stick: Workplace Wellness Programs & The Discriminatory Impact Of Financial And Health-Based Incentives, Emily Koruda

Boston College Journal of Law & Social Justice

In recent years, more and more employers are turning to workplace wellness programs to combat rising health care costs by rewarding employees for improving their health-related behaviors and penalizing those who do not attain measureable health outcomes. Yet these wellness programs run counter to the goals of improving the overall health and livelihood of employees when they shift health care costs onto the employees who need lower premiums the most. There is little evidence that these programs can avoid being discriminatory. This Note analyzes the disparate impact of workplace wellness programs on low-income individuals, individuals with disabilities, and certain racial ...


The Affordable Care Act, Experience Rating, And The Problem Of Non-Vaccination, Eric Esshaki 2016 University of Michigan Law School

The Affordable Care Act, Experience Rating, And The Problem Of Non-Vaccination, Eric Esshaki

University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform Caveat

Polio, the whooping cough, and the mumps, among many other communicable diseases, were once prevalent in communities within the developed world and killed millions of people.1 The advent of vaccinations contained or eradicated several of these diseases.2 However, these diseases still exist in the environment3 and are making a comeback in the United States.4 Their persistence is directly attributable to the rising trend among parents refusing to vaccinate their children.5 One proposed solution to this problem is to hold parents liable in tort when others are harmed by their failure to vaccinate. Another proposed solution argues ...


The Battle To Define The Scope Of Attorney-Client Privilege In The Context Of Insurance Company Bad Faith: A Judicial War Zone, Steven Plitt, Joshua D. Rogers 2016 James E. Rogers College of Law, University of Arizona; Current successor author to the nationally acclaimed insurance treatise COUCH ON INSURANCE 3D

The Battle To Define The Scope Of Attorney-Client Privilege In The Context Of Insurance Company Bad Faith: A Judicial War Zone, Steven Plitt, Joshua D. Rogers

University of New Hampshire Law Review

[Excerpt] "The attorney-client privilege is the "oldest of the privileges for confidential communications known to the common law."' The privilege is "[d]eeply rooted in public policy," and plays a 'vital role' in the administration of justice." As such, the privilege is "traditionally deemed worthy of maximum legal protection"' and "it remains one of the most carefully guarded privileges and is not readily to be whittled down." The privilege has come under assault in the insurance bad faith context in recent decades resulting in a "whittling down" of the privilege for insurance companies as a target party. Over the past ...


Reimagining The Risk Of Long-Term Care, Allison K. Hoffman 2016 University of Pennsylvania Law School

Reimagining The Risk Of Long-Term Care, Allison K. Hoffman

Faculty Scholarship

U.S. law and policy on long-term care fail to address the insecurity American families face due to prolonged illness and disability — a problem that grows more serious as the population ages and rates of disability rise. This Article argues that, even worse, we have focused on only part of the problem. It illuminates two ways that prolonged disability or illness can create insecurity. The first arises from the risk of becoming disabled or sick and needing long-term care, which could be called “care-recipient” risk. The second arises out of the risk of becoming responsible for someone else’s care ...
