  1. Lifestyle discrimination in the workplace & its implications Michelle Wang

  2. Lifestyle discrimination • Discrimination because of conduct and behaviors off the job • Smoking • not hiring smokers/nicotine screenings • Being overweight • “voluntary” health assessments

  4. conclusion • Discrimination against smokers and the overweight in the workplace is not about concern for employees’ health • People of color are disproportionately impacted by these lifestyle discriminations • There are better determinants of health than whether one smokes or what one eats • Social determinants of health
