Is It Wrong to Refuse to Hire Smokers?
James Hamblin, The Atlantic
In 2008, the World Health Organization implemented a policy wherein they ask all applicants two questions: Do you smoke or use tobacco products? If you currently smoke or use tobacco products, would you continue to do so if employed by WHO?
If the person answers "yes" to both, they "will not be considered for selection."
