    The person proposing this legislation is in a position of power and thus has given no thought to the subtle coercion that impacts those on the other end of a power imbalance. An employer doesn't have to say a word, or threaten a thing. People quickly discern the "corporate culture", and what actions and attitudes lead to promotion, plum assignments, raises, or other perks.
