It's akin those stories that crop up from time to time about companies that try to interfere in an employee's private life with regard to smoking and so forth. Equally pernicious.

They have a right to prevent people smoking at work as it is hazardous to the health of others.

You are prevented from smoking at work, except in designated areas, usually outside.

Shaker was talking about firms stopping people smoking outside of the work place, I think.

Yes - I didn't mean smoking while at work but outside of the workplace and working hours.

You would naturally and reasonably think so - but I've heard of some cases where employers try to influence it.

From what I can gather on employment law you can incentivise on this issue but not penalise.

Incentivise.

I think I've just been slightly sick.
