How Many Smoke Breaks are Employees Allowed to In a Workday? [Opinion]
"Smoke Break" is the name of Carrie Underwood's latest song, but it's also what's on my mind this morning.
How many smoke breaks are employees entitled to over the course of an eight-hour day? I had a coworker take issue with me leaving for the day at 10 a.m. The coworker brought this up while outside smoking for the second time that day, at 10 a.m., -- and after not getting to the office until about 8:15.
I give all of my smoking coworkers a hard time because I hate it. It killed my father and there's no reason to do it these days. That's easy for me to say, right? It hurts productivity.
I hope you aren't hooked.
