No more work for smokers

English2

The Ottawa internet firm Momentous is now not hiring smokers. The company is very open to many things like bringing your dog to work, but no smokers. They apparently are not the first to do it. In the United-States, 29 states deny such practices. In Canada it is more complicated. Smoking is not a right, but it is also illegal to discriminate people with disabilities. The national court has now to determine if smoking is a disability.
