    U-Haul to stop hiring nicotine users in 21 states

    The company said the new policy will go into effect on Feb. 1, 2020.

    PHOENIX - U-Haul announced it will soon reject job applicants who use nicotine in 21 states.

    The company said the new policy will go into effect on Feb. 1 and be enacted in Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia and Washington.


    The company said employees hired prior to that date will not be impacted by the policy.

    Job applicants in those states will see statements regarding the nicotine-free hiring policy on applications and be questioned about nicotine use, U-Haul said. In states where testing is allowed, applicants will have to consent to submit to nicotine screening in the future to be considered.

    “We are deeply invested in the well-being of our team members,” U-Haul Chief of Staff Jessica Lopez said in a press release.

    “Nicotine products are addictive and pose a variety of serious health risks. This policy is a responsible step in fostering a culture of wellness at U-Haul, with the goal of helping our team members on their health journey.”


    The company already has a wellness program in place designed to help employees quit using nicotine, as well as other health, nutrition and fitness initiatives.


    U-Haul, which is headquartered in Phoenix, employs more than 30,000 people across the U.S. and Canada.


    “If we take care for our team members, they will take care of our customers,” Lopez added.

    Yeah, I do not smoke. Worked at a company where the smokers took breaks ALL day long to go out and smoke. And took bathroom breaks on top of that.

    Left me to answer phones and do their job.

    So I took an "apple" break. Took my fruit outside every time they came back in and they were not happy I took same amount of breaks they did. Gave me evil eye for my "apple" break.

    Smokers cost employers a lot of money in breaks and healthcare costs and the other employees resent they are out puffing away all day long, every hour, on the hour.
