Smoke-Free Air Act

Effective April 15, 2006, indoor public places and workplaces in the State of New Jersey will be smoke free.

The Smoke-Free Air Act (P.L. 2005, c.383) prohibits smoking in indoor public places to protect employees and the public from secondhand smoke. “No Smoking” signs stating that violators may be fined must be prominently posted at every public entrance and properly maintained when smoking is prohibited. Compliance to the act is the responsibility of the person having control of an indoor public place or place of employment.  Employees and the public may report violations of the law to their local health department.
