Oregon's Smokefree Workplace Law protects nearly every Oregon employee from the health risks of secondhand smoke.
"Every Oregonian benefits from this law," said Dr. Bruce Goldberg, director of the Oregon Health Authority. "Employees will be able to punch in without endangering their health, businesses will save money on maintenance and sick time costs and the public will have more smokefree choices. Laws like this are proven to help smokers quit. This is a monumental change for Oregonians."
