Explain why this is a good policy.

Assignment: The city of Cambridge has mandated that employers “shall adopt, implement, and maintain a written smoking policy which shall contain a prohibition against smoking in restrooms and infirmaries.” Employers must also “maintain a nonsmoking area of not less than one-third of the seating capacity in cafeterias, lunchrooms, and employee lounges, and make an effort to work out any disputes between smokers and nonsmokers.” Your Task: As Lindsay English, director of Human Resources, write a memo to all department managers of Imperial Foods, a large food products company. Announce the new restriction, and tell the managers that you want them to set up departmental committees to mediate any smoking conflicts before complaints surface. Explain why this is a good policy.
