Please read this:
Per this story Clarion is going to charge a fee of $5 per paycheck to each of its employees who have smoked within the prior six months.
I do not have a problem with the policy at all, in fact, I think it is something many companies will do in the near future.
My only concern is on how far this could go. I would think that companies may start charging those who are overweight higher premiums, which I also have no problem with. What I would have a problem with is if they start charging people higher premiums or fees for medical conditions that are not the employees fault; for example, one who is born with diabetes...
I am curious as to what you all think of this policy?
