House Bill 1143 prohibits an employer from requiring an employee to have a device implanted in his or her body as a condition of employment, as a condition of employment in a particular position, or as a condition of receiving additional compensation or benefits. The bill’s sponsor, Sen. Jon Ford, stated a company in Wisconsin and several in Sweden are using microchips in employees’ hands on a voluntary basis and he is concerned about this trend entering our State. Read the text of the bill here and an article on the bill’s journey here.
