Non-smokers given four days extra holidays by Swindon employer

 A Swindon based recruitment agency is rewarding workers with four days of extra holiday per annum if they don’t take smoke breaks. The managing director argues that the policy aims to reward non-smokers, not penalise smokers. Accordingly, he argues that the policy does not discriminate, and is in fact balancing out the discrepancy in the longer hours worked by non-smokers who do not take frequent smoke breaks.
