Four Fired For Refusing Anti-Smoking TestIn 2003, Weyco announced its intent to prohibit employees from smoking even when off-duty. In January 2005, Weyco's Drug, Alcohol and Tobacco Free Workplace Policy went into affect. The policy specifically says "smoking or otherwise using tobacco at any time" is prohibited and will result in disciplinary action up to termination. Weyco's previous policy only prohibited smoking on company premises.
Failure to submit to a company smoke/tobacco test is also prohibited and results in immediate termination. The policy calls for both random testing and testing based on reasonable suspicion of smoking.
