Discrimination against Smokers?

Dennae
Dennae: An online advert for personnel states the smokers need not apply.

" - Smokers need not apply’ – legitimate discrimination - ?"

A correct response? or
An erosion of basic human rights?

Dennae: PS

I'm not trying to start a war or anything.
Just interested on people's view from both sides of the fence.

Any input appreciated.

Dennae: I have been and quite frankly, I may be again.
I don't think there is anything such animal as an "ex-addict" to any substance be it nicotine, alcohol or illegal drugs.
Just the ongoing willpower to stay away from them.

But this thread was more of a
"What do people think of the subject"

Was just asking for opinions from both sides.


I am currently writing a questionnaire to cover the issue and was hoping WireClub Forum-ers (is that a word?) would help me get inspired

Stewart75: Your topic is referring to 'Discrimination against Smokers'......... is it not...?..............

I wouldn't call it 'discrimination'............. I would call it perfect sense............

Like, why employ someone who wastes 10 minutes every hour going outside for a smoke............ if someone equipped with equal skills comes along for the interview......... who isn't gonna waste this time.............

Think about it................. it makes perfect sense................

AnywayZ............ smoking nicotine is for losers anyway................ like why bother...?...............

Edit: So you're thinking of starting again, Dennae...?............

Aura_: Well you don't really know the reason behind the non smokers requirement, maybe a valued employee is very allergic to smoke and they don't want him or her to go into breathing problems every time you come back from your cigarette break.
