In week 1 I introduced an Ethical Question…we didn’t have many takers. This week I am going to try “Your Thoughts” question. This one is pretty interesting and let’s you develop a bit of a better understanding of expenses. Take a look at the following:
Suppose you own a business. About a quarter of your employees smoke, and an even higher percentage are overweight. You decide to implement a mandatory health program that requires employees to quit smoking and to exercise regularly, with regular monitoring. If employees do not participate in the program, they will have to pay their own insurance premiums. Is this fair?
Try to limit the scope of your answer in a business sense.
