Indiana Employer Must Pay for Employee's Weight Loss Surgery

From Overlawyered (via AP)
“An Indiana court has ruled that a pizza shop must pay for a 340-pound employee’s weight-loss surgery to ensure the success of another operation for a back injury he suffered at work — raising concern among businesses bracing for more such claims.” The case was decided under workers’ compensation law, which is generally more coverage-friendly than workplace liability law."

Nothing a little universal health care wouldn't fix...
