(MyFoxBoston.com) – CVS is taking on privacy groups over a controversial employee insurance policy.
    
According to the Boston Herald, the Rhode Island-based company requires workers who use their health insurance to report their weight, body fat, and glucose levels to the insurer. If they don't, they have to pay a $600-a-year fine.
    
The company told the paper the initiative helps colleagues take responsibility for their health, while privacy groups say the screening discriminates against sick workers.
