Re: Charter Tech Willing To Help Those In Need

said by KoRnGtL15:

Nice gesture. Last I heard though. You can get fired from doing this and its not allowed according to Charter rules.

Yes,
I have heard that also and it is VERY sad what employers can get away with now a days.

Where my kid just got hired into, they test if you smoke even and won't hire you if you do. Personally, that just takes anyway any basic rights you had right there. I can understand not smoking there and in public places, etc., but to not hire you and they can fire you, because you smoke on your own time is just absurd!

If a company can show that their health insurance rates will be lower that is how they justify it.

Yes,
I know what their reasoning is for that, but then they should just deduct more from that individuals pay for insurance, not try to tell them what they can do on their own time!!

I agree with that also. One of the very few bright spots Charter ever had!

It's more than just the insurance rates. Smokers tend to be sick more often and most don't just smoke on their free time (ie: when not at work).

At a time when all companies are trying to cut cost and with the number of people available for any given position, they can pretty much use any criteria for selection that they want.
