This Article will deal with the protection of nonsmokers' rights with emphasis on the special problems faced by nonsmokers in North Carolina. Nonsmokers need a way to be assured of a safe workplace and of job security despite the fact that tobacco is of great importance in the state's economy. Nonsmokers need remedies to pursue if they are harmed by exposure to smoke. Also, employers need to be aware of the liability ramifications of nonsmokers' rights and of how to protect their employees.
