“Smokers and other nicotine users need not apply.” Is that even legal?

Because I’m a lawyer, I’ll say it depends. Except, I won’t charge you 0.1 hours of my time to say it.

Instead, I encourage you to go to SHRM’s website and read this article from Roy Maurer. Roy addresses a decision by the first major company in its field to decline job applicants who are nicotine users. And I chime in with some legal analysis.

So, it’s like we both wrote the article, and I’m using that as an excuse to provide you less than 100 words here today.

Eric, FTW!
