A new Ohio State University study shows that those who are in the work place and take smoke breaks cost employers around $6,000 per year.
The researchers came to this conclusion by adding up a number of factors including sick days and the amount of breaks a smoker takes. Think about it: With how addictive nicotine is, people take more smoke breaks, which adds up to unproductive time at work.
It’s no wonder employers are starting to ban smoking in the workplace and some are refusing to hire smokers at all.
