Sample Workplace Smoking Policy

Smoking is a hot issue in society today, and you as an employer need to make your stance on smoking in the workplace clear. In fact, some states have laws that require you to have a written smoking policy, to post that policy, and to designate certain areas as either smoking or nonsmoking areas. This customizable policy will help you communicate your rules on smoking to your employees and can help you comply with state law all at the same time. When customizing the policy for your use, be sure to consult your state's laws to see what requirements you may be subject to regarding smoking/no smoking areas, in particular.

The customizable smoking policy includes the following special features:

  • easy-to-edit fields to make the policy sound like it was written specifically for your business
  • special discussions of written policies, smoking in the workplace, smoking/no-smoking signs, and nondiscrimination against smokers (may be required by state law)
