Smoking in the workplace.

Abstract

Existing law prohibits smoking of tobacco products inside an enclosed space, as defined, at a place of employment. The violation of the prohibition against smoking in enclosed spaces of places of employment is an infraction punishable by a specified fine. This bill would expand the prohibition on smoking in a place of employment to include an owner-operated business, as defined. This bill would also eliminate most of the specified exemptions that permit smoking in certain work environments, such as hotel lobbies, bars and taverns, banquet rooms, warehouse facilities, and employee break rooms. By expanding the scope of an infraction, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. This bill would incorporate additional changes to Section 6404.5 of the Labor Code proposed by certain bills in the Second Extraordinary Session of the 2015–16 Legislative Session that would become operative if this bill and those bills are enacted, as specified, and this bill is enacted last. The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement. This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
