    Some employers penalizing workers for e-cigarette use

    A growing number of employers, including UPS and Wal-Mart Stores, have decided that electronic cigarettes are an unhealthy habit rather than a stop-smoking tool and are imposing tobacco-use penalties on employees who use them.

    Ivette Lopez, a spokeswoman for UPS, confirmed the company's health plan would begin charging a monthly fee of $150 in 2014 to employees who used tobacco products, including e-cigarettes that carry liquid nicotine.

    Cretins. They don't deserve my 10 characters.
    Would like to see their evidence for this tested in a court.
    As an employer they can make any arbitrary rule they want, and as employees we choose whether to continue working there, but to claim this rule has a basis in some fact/evidence/study should be challenged.
