Smoking in the Boys’ Room: You’re Fired!

Things are changing around here. Subscribe to our new YouTube channel and get a sneak peak at what's coming.

CAN SMOKING AFFECT MY EMPLOYMENT?

The third Thursday in November is the American Cancer Society’s 37th Great American Smokeout, an annual awareness event whereas smokers are challenged to spend 24 hours tobacco free.  I’m not here to make a case for or against smoking tobacco.  Everyone – especially smokers – know the health risks and financial cost of smoking.  But as a former smoker myself, I know that quitting smoking is probably one of the hardest things to do and easier said than done.  But, for some, choosing to light up could also cost them their job or their wallet with higher insurance premiums.

CAN AN EMPLOYER REQUIRE PRE-EMPLOYMENT NICOTINE TESTS?

The answer to whether employers can require a pre-employment nicotine screen as a condition of employment is yes, no maybe…  29 states have laws that protect employees from having their tobacco use status be a condition of employment, but for many, it’s still a big gray area.  While employers are not required to give smoke breaks or allow smoking in premises, they may not be allowed to require nicotine tests.  Some sight privacy violations, civil liberties infringements and discrimination.

The Scotts Lawn Care Case

In 2006, Massachusetts resident Scott Rodrigues lost his job of two weeks at Scotts Lawn Care after his pre-employment nicotine screen results came back positive.  Rodrigues sued Scotts on violation of privacy among other things. The judge ruled in favor of the employer, laying precedent for subsequent cases.

Hospitals and Health Centers are Leading the Smoke-Free Way

Nationwide, many hospitals have jumped on the smoke-free bandwagon when permitted at a faster pace than companies outside of the healthcare field.  ProMedica, which owns several hospitals in Michigan and Ohio, only hires employees who pass a pre-employment nicotine screen since it implemented the policy in January 2011.  If a candidate fails the screen, he or she can re-apply and retake the screen after 90 days.

CAN MY EMPLOYER FIRE ME FOR SMOKING IF I AM A CURRENT EMPLOYEE?

The answer is complicated and some states protect smokers with so-called “smokers rights.”  While it’s best to check your state, the short answer is yes.  If your state is a right to work state – meaning your employer can terminate your employment at any time without cause (and in turn you can quit anytime without justification or notice), then your employer can terminate you because you smoke or smell like smoke, and you might not even realize it.  That’s just the reality.

A Case of the Mistaken Smoker

Let’s look at the case of the Mistaken Smoker.  Her company had a clearly defined smoking policy that prohibited from smoking in the building.  Many of the smokers would convene at a designated smoking area.  But, because smoker didn’t want to socialize, she chose instead to smoke in her car.  All seemed well until a senior leader saw her and assume she was smoking a joint.  Despite her protests, they fired her on the spot and she took them to court.  She initially won on the grounds of wrongful termination.  The company appealed and the decision was overruled because her state was a right to work state.  The courts determined the company could terminate her for any reason, with or without cause, and therefore could rightfully terminate her because they thought she was smoking weed even though she wasn’t.

No employee immune to nicotine standards in Ohio Clinic

The Cleveland Clinic employees 40,000 and is Ohio’s second largest employers.  In 2010, facing a 6% increase in health care premiums, the company took drastic measures which started with smoking cessation programs and then a zero tolerance policy.  Among the new employee health standards (which included elimination of fried foods, exercise and wellness incentives and regular health checks), employees must adhere to a no-smoking or tobacco policy and are subjected to random screening.  Refusal to adhere to standards costs employees their jobs and soon after implementation let go of two high profile physicians.

Can my employer charge me more for Health Insurance because I smoke?

With healthcare costs predicted to rise 7.5% in 2013, companies are seeking out new ways to decrease premiums to maintain benefits for employees.  Some employers are charging higher our-of-pocket insurance premiums for smokers.  Smokers and companies alike are wondering what their rights are.  And, for the most part, these rights are set individually at the state level.

Wal-mart has made one of the most aggressive moves when it comes to penalizing poor health behaviors with surcharges to insurance premiums.  The smoking employee is charged $2,000 more annually than non-smoking peers.  Smoking employees can get a waiver for the surcharge if they enter an approved smoking cessation program, quit smoking or have their doctor attest that quitting smoking would be medically unadvisable or impossible.  Wal-mart isn’t the only big-name company taking this approach as Home Depot, PepsiCo, Safeway, Lowe’s and General Mills have defended decisions to seek higher premiums from its nicotine-positive employees.

Some may argue that tobacco use, the leading preventable cause of death in this country, isn’t the only poor health habit impacting insurance premiums.  And, I personally do not disagree with them.  Healthy eating and regular activity are essential to good health.  Obesity is often pointed at by smokers as a group that should be targeted to lower health care costs versus smokers (unless you are an obese smoker).  The jury is still out on whether obesity will be categorized as a disease, but I don’t think pointing fingers at other unhealthy groups will help tobacco users gain any ground.   Plus, severely obese individuals may be protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

JUST QUIT ALREADY

In my opening paragraph, I said I wasn’t making a case for or against smoking.  And, I wasn’t, but he fact is smokers don’t really have rights.  As people in this country, we have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  Smoking isn’t mentioned and there are no federal amendments pertaining to smoking.  Because smoking is detrimental to one’s health, is it right that your co-workers have to pay higher insurance premiums so you can smoke?  I personally don’t think so.  If you disagree with me, that’s fine.  And, if you don’t want to be subjected to nicotine testing or constantly be jonesing for a smoke because you work on a smoke-free campus, my suggestion is to exercise your rights to choose who you do and don’t work for.   It’s your right NOT to work for them – so find a different employer.  Or, take some advice and get free support and help from the American Cancer Society.  If you can go 24 hours smoke free, I’m willing to bet you can do anything.

  20. Severral Singaporeans and Expatriates wish to reside in
    a house because of the various conveniences that come
    with it, andd sometimes because they’re often viewed as
    a symbol of high status. Nonetheless, buying a private residence can be a reasonably big
    investment and there are numerous things that you should think
    about before you basically signal the papers and complete the transaction.
    Here are 10 tips that may help you in making your decision or if maybe not make the procedure simpler!

    Many people simply dive straight into investing in a exclusive condominium since their pure property of it’s still sden as a image of luxury and high-status.
    However, you may want to place more thought to the location of your home.
    Do a tiiny homework on the diverse places in Singapore and get the most perfedt place for you personally.
    In the end, there is definitely no dash in selecting.

    You might want to explore some of the common expatriate enclaves including Holland Village and
    Dempsey, which are generally thee greatest destinations for
    ex-pats thinking off buying. Do you need too commute by public transport to work?
    Then buying a place closer towards the MRT and coach stands should really be something you may wish to consider.

    Looking for interior design assistance ffor your condo? also and make-up attire demand a rokutine
    make-over, as period pss your likes also and existence variations along with
    your inside environment wishes rehuilding as much since the hair.
    Nearing a pro foor professional cenfral decor in Singapore support isn’t only
    for the prosperous and famous.

    Altering property decor of your look or company to replicate your improvement wants and desires can be
    more discouraging than purchasing a couple of items to fresh-up your closet, but using a little bit of help from a specialist master
    in Singapore can be amusing and the end result would be rewarding.
    A decorator is just a specific who’s got the
    expertise for building interior areas but doesn’t have official training, while a certified designer can be an
    experienced pro with a degree.

    We’re a fwmily of 4 (kids 8 & 5) considering a go
    on to Singapore. Living in Melpbourne I’m used to open spots and
    major homes. What advice may everyone offer me when I negotiate with the firm to get a housing allowance.
    I anticipate we will want to send our youngsters to the Australian International School
    so we will want to be close to that.

    As an Aussie the tradition of condo and house living is very
    foreign. Are the townhouses all-they are damaged as much as be or is it easier
    to opt for a more communal living approach? At the
    end-of the day its a personal standard of living decision,
    but I’d welcome feedback from others who have
    needed to make thhe transition.

    Site iis essential however it often includes a cost!
    The deeper you are towards the MRT or even to thhe town, the more
    costly the condo might be. For instance the
    price of a pplace in Holland Village may be twice as
    high priced when compared with a place situated in
    Woodlands. You may want to lkok into the closenhess of colleges in the area, iff you’ve children.

    Wikipedia includes a listing of worldwide colleges in their
    distinct details and Singapore.

    Search for supermarkets and convenience stores nearby
    which could facilitate your decision also. Another part of choosing the right location
    is the concern many individuals have about which way the flat is facing.
    Thus if you’re inmto Feng Shui, yoou may want to
    look into this even more.

    Going to work isn’t categorized as driving for work, except where
    in fact the person’s journey begins from their home and they are travelling to a
    work location that’s not their typical place off work.

    Driving for work entails a possibility nnot
    just for the motorist, but additionallky for fellow workers and associates of the public, including other road users andd pedestrians.

    New Regulations wil dramatically reduce from 12 to 6 the amount of punishment points a
    novice cars can gather within a interval before shedding their permit.

    For all motorists the penalties for speeding, failing to wear a seatbelt or using a cellular phone incteases
    from two tto five and, upon confidence in court, tto three items.

    Beneath thhe fresh regulation doctors will be permitted to take a blood test from an unconscious motorist which won’t be tested until they can give consent.

    detect drug driving

    1. Look at a map of your test centre location and mark out one of the most difficult sections of the test channels such as one-way roads,
    difficult corner juntions, mini-roundabouts, so you are ready for
    them on approach, as opposed to having to take care of them without right knowledge within your driving test.
    Be sure to get a lot of procedure over the check avenues using a qualified driving college such as Amber Driver-training.

    2. Understand the Q&A, Road indications, Hand alerts, Reverse into
    a juntion and Turnabout before you could carry them out with no slight problems.
    That will abandon you with a clean slate for the remaining driving exam.

    3. Practice before you can push without verbal or physical intervention from your own
    instructor for that period of a whole driving
    session or a Pre – driving test. If your instructor is providing verbal or physical intervention ‘You are not Prepared’

    As an employer or self-employed individual, you should, by law, handle
    the dangers that’ll arise when yyou or your workers drive for work.
    They can influence and promote safe driviong actions among
    all of their workers while employers cannot right get a handle on roadway problems.

  31. With 17.4-inch of web traffic returning directly from mobile in 2013 alone, a 6% up-tick since 2012, it’s no
    surprise that more and more organizations are building smart mobile advertising strategies to enhance brand awareness.

    LinkedIn, another top social media company, granted the same warning late Tuesday, stating that its sizzling growth rate
    could not proceed — rarely shocking, given the law of large
    numbers, but still a shock of cold water to buyers.
    On Wednesday linkedin shares dropped over
    9 percent.

    To account for this push toward cellular, forecasts forecast that for 2013, digital ad spending
    will consume 22.7% of all ad spending. And those dollars are not invested in vain, at
    least not foor these four corporations, every one of
    which employ cellular offer sstems to target their clients and increase their clients.

    Annd with all the introduction of Pinterest’s Promoted Pins and Instagram Adverts,
    smaller businesses can have more ways than ever to attract
    audiences.

    Perhaps most important for Facebook’s future being an advertising-driven company in a full world
    of iPads and Android smartphones, the company
    mentioned that cell advertisements accounted for 49
    percent of its advertising income, up from 41 percent while in the
    second quarter. Facebook mentioned charges for cellular adverts remained large, and users were clicking
    on them in their announcement nourishes with greater regularity.

    That bodes well, authorities mentioned, for its smaller rival, Twitter, which takes
    a related approach to cell advertisements and is preparing to promote share to shareholders in an initial giving when in a few days.

    mobile ad network
    Clark Fredricksen, a vice president with eMarketer, a research
    firm, stated Twitter could benefit from Facebook’s efforts in mobile as the bigger company
    was trading seriously in schooling users and entrepreneurs
    about mobile adverts.

    “Facebook is a major drive in aiding marketers and users get more confident with discovering
    and obtaining cellular ads,” he said.

    The right blend of Millennial Media executives, probably
    the most revolutionary publishers and Fortune Top 100 advertisers and developers on the planet, created for a successful recipe of imagined and cooperation
    expressing.

    To conquer points down and commence the occasion with a hammer, our CEO,
    Paul Palmieri, presented his sector famous perception in to where the
    mobile advertising market would be planning in the next several
    years. His aim was to stimulate our spouses to monetization of mobile applications and internet

    might appear just a little weird, they frequently don’t injure
    and present no recognized health-related issue. (Hence, doctors often recommend not
    managing them.) If however you desire to remove the skin tags
    since you watch them as undesirable there are certainly a 22′ amount
    approaches to remove them bokth home going to the doctor,,, of, in the and by.

    Skin tags are frequent, acquired, benign skin growths that seem like a small delicate, baloons of hanging
    skin. Skin tgs are harmless growths that may differ iin

    formed. The medical name for skin-tag iis acrochordon.

    Skin tags are bitrs of flesh-tinted or darkky piigmented tissues that venturee from thee
    encompassing skin ffrom a small, thun talk (pedunculated).
    Many people call these cancers “skin tab.” Skin tags typically arise 4′ quality spots the foot the neck underarms eyelids

    and beneath. Early on, skin tickets may be as small as a compressed pinhead-sized bundle.

    While most tags usually are smaller (2 mm-5 mm in diameter) at around one-third to one-half the size of a pinky
    fingernail, many skin tags could become as large being a huge grape (1 cm
    in diameter) or even a fig (5 cm in diameter).

    Except for the cosmetic look, skin tags usually
    cause no physical suffering or distress. These teeny skin
    growths typically trigger symptoms when they are repeatedly 12′ irritated 12″ as example the collar the groin. Aesthetic eradication ugly look could very well be the most frequent reason they are removed, for, from or in for. A label may involve removal as it is becoming irritated and crimson from bleeding (hemorrhage) or black from death and twisting, sometimes of the skin tissues (necrosis). Occasionally, they may become snagged by apparel, jewellery, pets, or seat-belts, producing pain or distress. Overall, these are very cancerous growths that have zero cancers (malignant) likely.

    Skin tags can very quickly be burnt or freezing down in an identical solution to how warts are eliminated.

    In case your skin tag is little with a thin bottom, the GP may recommend you try eliminating it-yourself by:

Nevertheless, a number of people would rather ask them to eliminated, often for aesthetic reasons or since the tickets might rub against clothing or usually be troublesome. There are over-the-counter supplements designed to remove the like, moles, warts and skin tags. Clear nail polish put on the skin label has also been employed as being a home remedy, but isn’t a scientifically-proven treatment Moreover, individuals have been recognized to reduce their labels with ice before chopping them off with clean scissors or nail clippers. Remember the area may rarely but probably acquire significant bleeding and / or disease, therefore property surgical removal isn’t anything to be taken casually.

    A medical doctor may recommend eliminating your skin tag employing a ligation process (attaching the base of the tag with suturing thread, for example, to cut off the circulation and enable the tag to dry up and drop off), cryotherapy to freeze it off, electric cauterization, or surgical removal with scissors or a knife. When completed in a doctor ‘s office, a mind-numbing cream or treatment may be employed, and attention is taken fully to avoid bleeding and infections.
    how do i get rid of skin tags
    There are also home remedies and self-therapies, including braiding off the little tag stalk using a bit of thread or dental floss and allowing the tag to slip off over several times.

    The benefit of scissor eradication is that the progress there are and is immediately eliminated prompt outcomes. The possible downside of any kind of scissor or minor surgical treatment to eliminate labels is minor bleeding.

    Probable challenges with freezing or burning incorporate temporary skin discoloration, need for repeat cure (s), and inability for the draw to fall off.

    There is no proof that eliminating tags causes more tags to cultivate. Rather, there are some people who may be more susceptible to creating skin tags and may include new cancers regularly. Many individuals possibly need intermittent treatment of tags at yearly or regular intervals.
