This seems like a slippery slope.

I agree. Like the other poster, I see why they are doing this. It's even a good reason. But the civil libertarian in me doesn't like it. A better answer is a system like the other poster mentioned where you simply pay an elevated premium to engage in such activities. Now, if you lied about it so you didn't have to pay that extra bit, then by all means you should be fired. I have no problem with that.

However, as long as you are above-board about your behaviors, I think you should be able to do what you like. All the company (or government agency...whichever you work for) should be able to do is increase your premiums for those behaviors.
