Can You Use Electronic Cigarettes At Work?
Electronic cigarette companies and the media portray electronic cigarettes as if they can literally be used ‘anywhere’, but in reality that’s not always the case. Though some employers may let you use your electronic cigarette in the workplace, that doesn’t mean all of them will.
E-cigarettes are being put under the tobacco product classification, so some retail stores have included them in bans, such as the more upsetting Starbucks ban that took place on June 1. Even with such bans, many stores, bars, lounges and restaurants continue to allow e-cigs.
The best way to go about finding out if you can use your electronic cigarette in the workplace, is to simply talk to your employer first. One thing you don’t want to do is disrespect anyone or make them feel uncomfortable. Go about it as any respectful person would do, by talking to your employer and giving them the facts about electronic cigarettes
