Approximately two-thirds of organizations communicate their policies through employee handbooks/manuals (70%) and/or new employee orientation (60%). Although only 2% of organizations have a formal policy against hiring smokers, roughly three-fourths of organizations (74%) who implement smoking related policies take disciplinary actions against employees who violate their smoking policies.
