  • Firing an employee cause he smokes?

    Can you imagine firing an employee because he smokes? Do you think this is a good idea or a bad one?

    Smoker says company violated his rights when they fired him - A 30-year-old man who has smoked for more than a decade filed a lawsuit Wednesday against The Scotts Co., alleging the lawn and garden company violated his privacy and civil rights when it fired him because he smokes.

    Scott Rodrigues, of Bourne, claims he was fired from the lawn-care job he had for several weeks after a drug test came up positive for nicotine. But he said he wasn't told he would be tested for the substance and was told the company would help him quit.

    many employers here actually state that non-smokers only need apply. I think it saves them on insurance premiums.

      How far do you think this can be taken? Will employers one day have employees sign contracts that they won't eat fatty foods because it causes heart problems?
