What would be the worst policy a company could implement?

A. No leaving the office during breaks. No leaving the premises - even to go on an energetic walk.

B. No smoking on the office premises. Not even outside, in the parking lot or on the terrace.

C. All of the above.

Guess what the State of WI is going to be implementing next year for its employees? You guessed it; "C" - all of the above. This will also effect our 'customers' who end up waiting around sometimes for quite a while.

I don't smoke, but I sure feel for smokers in this instance. This means they will not be allowed to smoke anywhere on the state grounds or to leave the building to go smoke somewhere else! Oh, you can choose to leave the premises on your "15 minute" morning/evening break, but if you do, you must tell your supervisor and it will be docketed from your lunch break.

We also have a lot of 'customers' in my line of work who like to smoke. Imagine us running out to the parking lot to inform them to "put out that cigarette"; its not allowed here!

Oh this is going to be a lot of fun! (And the State of WI thought it had problems find good workers before!)
