Companies in Japan are fined for having fat employees

November 19, 2012

Since 2008, Japan has a law by which companies are fined for having fat employees. If you’re male and your waist is over 33.5 inches, you’re considered fat. If you’re female, the limit is 35.4 inches. The rationale behind this law is that fat people cost more for the state health care system and companies should chip in unless they encourage healthy life style of their employees.
