I don’t know about Oregon but they can do it in Texas because there are city governments doing it now.

Next week it will be ten years of being a non-smoker.

I’ve run into the same thing; I’ve also been dropped from consideration because I own guns.

You should have said and I have AIDS.

Then they can’t touch you.

They don’t view AIDS as being as dangerous to society as smoking.

Well, you could file a complaint. It won’t get you THIS job. I guess you can’t tell them the truth anymore.

Tell them you quit, then start again or just quit.

You could have leered at her and said, "Only after sex, baby."

It wouldn't have turned out differently, but it might have been good for a laugh.

Did she ask you what you smoked?

Sounds like an unhealthy environment. Soon they’d have you eating tofu and doing yoga. Guard your chakras!!

Enjoy your smokes.
There has to be a job out there that is run by a smoker.

If this is true there is a statute where companies cannot use smoking as a consideration when hiring, then the interviewer should not have asked you if you smoked.

The most she could have done was say, "this is a no smoking work place, will this be a problem for you?"

You won't get the job and you don't want to work there in any case but you might want to shake up the HR department and write them a letter informing them that you were asked an improper question at your interview and you are seeking advise as to what your avenue for redress should be.

It is after all the truth, you just did seek advice. Do NOT say that you will sue them or anything else like that. The flame ain't worth the candle.

Bottom line - you don’t have a “right” to a job there, and smokers aren’t protected classes. Look elsewhere.

Do you think the employer should be forced to hire you? What if he did hire you but you didn’t like the job? Should you be allowed to quit?

Having owned my own small business, my feeling is they should be able to hire whoever they want.

So this is your one and only post at FR, an open ended vanity?

I wouldn’t hire you for that fact alone.
