Handling bosses who smoke in the office

Handling bosses who smoke in the office. [Newspaper] (2022)


KUALA LUMPUR: Raihana (not her real name) can barely breathe in her office.

Like many others in Malaysia, the 40-year-old caught Covid-19 in February during the Omicron spike, when the country saw cases reaching almost 30,000 daily for over a month.

As an asthma sufferer, the biggest misery for her and her colleagues, many of whom had also suffered a bout of Covid-19, is their boss who insists on chain-smoking in the office. Worse, her attempts to get her company's Human Resources Department involved without risking her job have failed so far.
