Abstract
This study investigated both smoking and nonsmoking undergraduates' reactions to an organization implementing a policy that either mandated or recommended that employees quit smoking. Undergraduate participants (N = 296) were randomly assigned to 1 of 2 (high vs. low severity of a smoke-free policy implementation) 2 (high vs. low organizational assistance) conditions and indicated their organizational attraction for a hypothetical organization, imagining themselves as job applicants. The findings showed that organizational attraction was affected by the level of organizational assistance but not by the level of severity. These and other findings concerning individuals' perceived severity, perceived organizational support, smoking sensitivity, and employer control are presented in detail, and the implications thereof are discussed.
