Since 2004, the California Clean Indoor Air Act has prohibited employees from smoking within the workplace in order to ensure that employees are not exposed to secondhand smoke while at work. Employers should post no smoking signs throughout the workplace in order to inform employees of the laws that impact them in the workplace.
These posters are available in Spanish and English and should be place in areas of the workplace that are visible to all employees, such as the employee break rooms or the restrooms. Employees may smoke outside in designated smoking areas. However, according to the California Clean Indoor Air Act, employers should ensure that they do not smoke indoors.
