Hi there,

It’s not a question I’ve ever been asked before and it’s never come into the equation when writing JD’S before.

However one of our Managers is involved in a company outside of work and one of the senior Managers has written a JD which states on it as one of the requirements ‘Non Smokers only required’.

Now obviously most places of work are smoke free already and those that aren’t will be by 1st July, but surely if they put the above in that discriminates against smokers who would never normally even consider smoking anywhere near their place of work or would be more than happy to save smoking until lunchtimes outside?

Or is it absolutely fine?
