Proposed NV law would let hospitals refuse to hire smokers

Las Vegas Sun, February 21, 2013
A smoking habit could cost you a job opportunity at a hospital or other medical facility under legislation proposed by Sen. Joe Hardy, R-Boulder City. It's currently illegal for an employer to discriminate against employees who use a product—such as tobacco—outside of work that does not affect job performance or the safety of other employees. Hardy's measure, Senate Bill 87, would repeal that law.
