This document is a no smoking policy.
The policy is designed to:
· provide employers with an outline of the responsibilities of employees in relation to smoking in the workplace;
· allow employers to specify places where smoking is not permitted in the workplace;
· promote a smoke free workplace policy in recruitment and training for new employees; and
· authorise placement of “no smoking” signs.
The policy may apply to all employees, contractors and visitors to the workplace and can be used on conjunction with the “Grievance policy”.
For an employment agreement, see the separate precedent collection, including the “Basic employment agreement (short form)” and “Basic employment agreement (long form)”.
