    In my world I would say yes that employers should be allowed to fire somebody because they smoke! I can't stand the stench of cigarettes and cigars, etc. In this politically correct state-of-being that we are in, no, they should not be allowed to fire somebody because they smoke. Maybe full-time employment could be based on a short physical for possible insurance and then the employer could base their decision to hire on the outcome of that physical. As for part-time….I don't know…STOP SMOKING!

    As long as it's still legal to buy and sell cigarettes, they should not be fired for being a smoker, while the employer can set limits to how often and where smokers go for a smoke break. Firing a smoker would be the same as firing a drinker. Yes it's best to be a none smoker, but thats in a perfect world.

    I would hope to be given an opportunity to quit smoking first, but an employer should have the right to fire for any reason and keep your govt. out of it. If your competition hires the better talent, including smokers, you may suffer. The smokers should have the right to open a smokers only work force.

    I'd say yes, especially if the employee in question smokes in the work place or close to it. Not everyone can stand even a whiff of tobacco. Still, Tom's right, fair warnings should still be given and maybe even a suggestion to try healthier and less disruptive alternatives.

    I have a theme that is responsive but the content appears uneven within its page container so that it appears aligned left. I want to make sure that it is always centered no matter the screen size; and I was wondering if I could and how to convert it to being fixed or correct the issue.

    I'd say yes, especially if the worker in query cigarette smoking in the position of perform or near to it. Not everyone can take a position even a whiff of cigarettes. Still, Tom's right, reasonable alerts should still be given and maybe even a recommendation to try better and less troublesome solutions.
