Extra Time Off for Non-Smoking Employees: Is This Fair?
There is a company in Japan that now offering their non-smoking employees an EXTRA six days off. Why? WELL…it is to offset the time that their co-workers take for smoke breaks. HUMMMM......
The WRIC report said the non-smoking workers at this company complained that they worked more hours than the smokers due to the smoke breaks. This was the solution...six extra days off for the non-smokers. The non-smokers are starting to take advantage of the extra days and some smokers are working on breaking the habit…and will then be able to take advantage of this benefit.
What do you think?
I LOVE IT. When we did have smokers at our office I remember being VERY annoyed about all the smoke breaks some took. I am inside doing my job and they were out there chatting, having fun, taking a break and smoking. But we all ended up about the same amount of hours a day.
