'Fess up, or pay a fee: Outrage over 'bullying' CVS policy that requires workers to 'voluntarily' report health information... or pay a $600 fine
A new policy at the popular pharmacy chain CVS is causing outrage after the company announced it will require its employees to report their weight, BMI, and glucose levels – or pay a hefty fine. CVS Caremark, which is based in Rhode Island, has some 200,000 employees.
The controversial new policy would require workers to sign a waiver that they ‘voluntarily’ disclosed the information, but those who opt out must pay a $600 fee.
CVS added that they will cover the cost of these screenings. But that comes at a price – those who have their tests covered by the company are required to sign a waiver saying the screenings were voluntary.

From my perspective, it's becoming harder and harder for me to remember there was ever anything different.

How can this be legal? Wouldn't HIPPA prevent this?
