Privacy groups are raising objections to a new requirement drug store giant CVS is now requiring of employees. 

The Rhode Island-based pharmacy chain is now requiring all employees to undergo a weight, body-fat and glucose screening and submit the results to the company’s health insurer.  Any employee who fails to submit the screening results by May 1st will face a 50-dollar a month increase in their health insurance costs.

Data privacy experts have protested the move, saying the company could use the information to purge workers with conditions such as diabetes to help cut health insurance costs
