Electronic communication and smoking devices
In the last 20 years, the issue of company policies on “telephones” and “smoking” have been redefined with the addition of cell phones and electronic communication devices, as well as electronic smoking devices, known as “e-cigarettes,” to the workplace. Accordingly, there has been much new legislation to regulate their use.
Which of these statements best describes how you should proceed in updating employment policies on these topics?
We need to monitor the state legislature to determine if a law has been passed addressing one of these topics and then adjust our company’s policy accordingly.
We should keep track of federal, state, and local laws on these topics to stay in compliance.
There are no federal laws specific to these topics, so we can keep our current policies.
We can still use one cell phone and one smoking policy for all of our facilities as long as we review them annually.
