  • are u an employee trying to figure out how to report someone? or are u a smoker? i would report it to a manager, unless its the manager doing it then maybe to the owner of the company? and if all else fails to the health department? It doesn't seem fair that some employees can break the law and make other employees feel uncomfortable about the workplace if that is what's going on here...

  • I would say something to the person who is smoking where it is not allowed.If that doesn't work,than I'd take it up with the manager.Does this place have a designated area for people who do smoke?If it does,maybe this person doesn't know about it.

  • Why can't you go smoke outside like 100 ft away from the building?

  • I would do what the other posters suggested. But beware if it become known that you made the complaint you might have some unhappy coworkers.

  • Are you a smoker, or is it bothering you? In Louisiana we haven't been able to smoke inside buildings for the last 2 years. I'm a smoker and it doesn't bother me, I don't smoke in my car or house because of my children. So I was glad that no one can smoke inside buildings anymore as well. You need to speak with upper management.
