About This Course:
What will the new FDA regulations on electronic cigarettes regulations mean for you and your workplace?

For instance, what should HR do re the following:
  • Are you legally obligated to include e-cigarettes in your no smoking policy?
  • Do state and local laws that prohibit smoking in office buildings apply to e-cigarettes?
  • What about if your organization decides that it wants to refuse to hire smokers. Can you do this? Is it legal?
  • Let's say an applicant applies for a job with your organization but. You have a policy that states that you will not hire an applicant who tests positive for nicotine.
  • Can you refuse to hire an applicant who tests positive for nicotine? If you do refuse to hire the applicant, what liability could you be exposed to? What if the applicant alleges that they tested positive for nicotine because they vaped e-cigarettes and not because they smoke cigarettes?
  • If you decide to refuse to hire smokers, what are the policy considerations you should be focusing on?
  • What about if you find an employee vaping e-cigarettes behind closed doors in their office. Is this prohibited under your no-smoking policy? Can you discipline them for this?
