Corporation Ask Employees To Disclose Their Weight Or Pay $600 Annual Penalty

American corporation CVS has put a close in their employees contracts asking them to disclose how much they weigh or they would be obligated to pay a monthly $50 penalty which totals to $600 annually.

“Avoid $600 penalty” the corporation warns the employees who are on the company’s health care policy.

By may 1 they are required to show up to a doctor for an annual wellness review, submit to tests for blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol and body mass and body weight. Reports NBC

"Going forward, you'll be expected not just to know your numbers - but also to take action to manage them," the CVS policy states.

But that’s not all smokers working for CVS are warned that they must be tobacco free come May 1st, or they will have to undergo participate in the WebMD tobacco cessation program." Defiant smokers can avoid penalties if they are healthy enough in other categories specified by the company.

In a statement, CVS said the employee health data will be kept private and it defended its new policy. CVS, which is based in Rhode Island, also said the company would never see the test results.

Could this be the way to get your employers to care for their health?
