Who's the boss on employee health?

I read "Bosses Assign a New Task: Stay Well" (Nov. 17) with great alarm. This policy is so discriminatory that I am surprised no lawsuits have been initiated. It's fine to offer health information and support to employees, but to penalize those who decline it is an assault on our civil liberties. The day an employer forces me to join a health program or lose health benefits is the day I quit. The arrogance of employers putting all the health responsibility on the employees' shoulders is outrageous!
