Smoking colleagues

When Margot still had her business, she made herself rather unpopular with some of her colleagues by making a rule that smoking was not permitted inside the building. She smoked a few cigarettes herself every day and the other smokers felt a bit betrayed.

Now it is illegal to smoke inside public places or workplaces.

Things to remember

  • Other peoples’ smoke can harm your health.
  • You have a right to clean air and somebody smoking where it affects you, is against the law.
  • You can put in an official complaint if your requests are not met
  • In all public places, including restaurants, government buildings and places of work smoking is not permitted.
  • “I don’t mind your smoking, if you don’t mind my being sick all over you.” Thomas Beecham
