Workers Comp Pays for Pizza Cook's Weight Loss Surgery

Via Huffington Post I found this story about a pizza cook whose employer is being forced to pay for his weight loss surgery http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/09/10/court-says-employer-must-_n_282676.html The 340 pounder was injured on the job, and his doctors opine that he has to drop considerable weight before required back surgery can be undertaken.

This is an instance I reckon of taking your victim as you find him. If a really fat man hurts his back or knees or hip or what have you, there's a good chance that weight loss surgery will be needed as a prerequisite to healing the injured part.

The author of the article reckons that this will give employers an incentive to take a pass on really fat applicants for employment.
