CNN Article on Trend of Companies Refusing to Hire Smokers
Chris Kozelle of CNN offers this well-researched article on trends in smoker-free workplace policies. In addition to quotes from me, Gary Nolan of the Smoker's Club makes the point that whether a hospital employee - such as a physician - smokes at home has no impact on that person's ability to perform their job. So far, no employer has answered the question of why they continue to hire people who are overweight if their intent is to ensure a healthy workforce.
