Exercise at Work
We are a small-ish (300 employees) non-profit organization in the beginning stages of developing a Health and Wellness program. We have partnered with the YMCA and a local chain of gyms to offer discounted/no enrollment fees and discounted monthly membership fees. We are reviewing the results of a Health and Wellness survey we just sent out, and have found the MANY employees want to have exercise programs onsite. They want the convenience and a lower cost than joining a full gym. We are interested and willing to look into offering classes at lunch or after work (unpaid time) but have some major concerns regarding employer liability. My initial thought is to require liability waivers and Dr. permission notes for participation. Is that enough? Does anyone have any good information/resources regarding this?
