Companies Smoking Ban ON And OFF The JOB Or YOUR FIRED

Just like in California, it's legal to discriminate!

Smoking laws vary widely throughout the United States. Some places in
the United States do not generally regulate smoking at all, some ban
smoking in certain areas and not others, and some ban smoking nearly
everywhere, even in outdoor areas (no state bans smoking in all public
outdoor areas, but some local jurisdictions do). As of October 2009,
according to the American Nonsmokers' Rights Foundation, 71% of the U.S.
population lives under a ban on smoking in "workplaces, and/or
restaurants, and/or bars, by either a state, commonwealth, or local law,though only 41.2% live under bans in all workplaces
and
restaurants
and bars. A smoking ban (either state, county, or local) has been enacted
covering
all bars and restaurants in each of the 60 most populated cities in the United States except these 16 Arlington, Atlanta, Fort Worth, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Memphis, Miami, Las Vegas, Nashville, Oklahoma City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Sand Antonia, Tampa, Tulsa, and Virginia Beach.

Smoking bans are going a step further with companies and
that means even invading your privacy by placing a Smoking Ban for which
your job may depend on if you smoke. If you are ever caught anywhere
at anytime smoking ... YOUR FIRED! Not only would you loose your job
over it but your unemployment claim after you get fired! It doesn't
matter if it is in your own home, property, or vehicle ... If your
caught smoking ... YOUR FIRED! How do you like those apples?

    I think what is going on outside the work place (as long as no one's being hurt) is the business of the employee and NOT the EMPLOYER ..

    Or another analogy would be ........as long as I am paying my own bills and not breaking any laws ... the GOVERNMENT has no BUSINESS tellling me what I can and can't do ...........

    how it kills people too? Did you know that drinking the water in certain areas can cause cancer? Y...because of the chemicals that runs into the streams, creeks, from the tree farms but mother nature helped to filter it. My husband is a survivor!

    drinking water does have alot of chemicals in it and in certain areas the chemicals are pretty higher...

    and you can die from drinking too much water it acts as if your body is drowning

    however borntobewild is right drinking water is dangerous bottle spring water is much safer i myself have a water purifier and that doesnt always get all the chemicals out

    my mom got cancer from it she was treated and is doing well today

    chemicals are never a good thing

    and by the way the tobacco itself is not as dangerous its the filters with the chemicals in it that cause most of the harm that cigarettes do

    tobacco is not the number one cause! What gave you that idea?

    its the additives in the tobacco and the filters in the cigs

    out of the cigarettes that are bad

    i am not sure on the cigarettes vs the water causing cancer more scenario but you would know you have had an experience with it unfortunately

    the additives that the companies put in the tobacco are the number one cause of cancer

    yes i have .. i have a husband that smokes and chews. he smokes outside if you would like to know because he respects others. however if it is legal to smoke there are designated smoking areas for smokers at most companies so those that do not want to be subject to that stay out of those areas

    if your gonna ban smoking from the office and then ban it from the workers home how is it legal you are infringing on their privacy and their personal freedoms you cant tell someone if you smoke a cigarette when your not at work or if you smoke in your home your fired.., first of all a cigarette is not illegal

    read the article in its entirety they arent just banning it in the work place they are banning employees from engaging in it on their personal time that means at their homes
