Is this a trend in which more and more companies are trying to bully their employees into healthier lifestyles?

According to a newly published survey conducted by Towers Watson and the National Business Group on Health, 40% of companies in the U.S. are willing to use surcharges against their employees based on their health. That percentage has almost doubled since 2011.

Business experts predict that by 2015, two-thirds of American companies will penalize workers who are overweight or smoke.
