The Ethics of Not Hiring Smokers — NEJM

The Ethics of Not Hiring Smokers — NEJM | Sports Ethics: Borland, J. | Scoop.it
Perspective from The New England Journal of Medicine — The Ethics of Not Hiring Smokers (RT @jessiegruman: Ethics of not hiring smokers and complications therein. Not so simple [essays.
Heath Borland's insight:

I am not a smoker, however, I do think that it is unethical to not hire a person just because he/she smokes. If, as a business owner, you want to dip your toes in the tobacco control world, than there are other ways you can do it. Don't NOT hire a smoker. The economy is bad enough without turning someone who would otherwise be fully eligeable for a job away and back to the street.

 

I work for USAA, a financial services company that primarily serves the military community. All of the USAA campuses are smoke free. So, for employees to go smoke they have to walk quite a distance in order to do so. We only get two 20 minute breaks a day, and a 35 minute lunch. I know that at the Phoenix campus, 20 minutes isn't enough time to get off campus, smoke, and get back to work in time.

 

Another thing that employers could do is offer free or reduced pricing for smoking cessation classes for their employees. Like I said, there are other ways to control tobacco use.

Heath Borland's insight:

Wow! It takes a special breed of human to be a Personal Trainer. There are certain characteristics and traits that you need. Patience, understanding, an ability to adabt to your clients needs, and the ability to pursuade are all a part of the job. They apparently can't do these things, and it's sad that the people that need their help the most are suffering because of it.

Heath Borland's insight:

I, being an athlete myself, understand competativeness. However, being a batter in the MLB you have to know that you are going to get hit with the ball at times. Storming the mound is something that I think needs to be removed from the game of baseball. I don't care how good the pitcher is or how much he makes, a ball is bound to get away from him.
