Smokers Bill of Rights Targeted

Your cigarette habit could cost you a job if the Indiana Chamber achieves one of its goals for the upcoming session.

The Chamber is seeking repeal of Indiana‘s 1990 "smokers‘ bill of rights," which says employers can’t refuse to hire smokers and can‘t charge them higher premiums for health insurance.
