Smoking Complaints (Labor Code 6404.5)

California's Smoke Free Workplace Law ( Labor Code 6404.5) is designed to protect workers from the harmful effects of secondhand smoke. It states that smoking is prohibited in virtually all enclosed places of employment, with the exception of tobacco shops, private residences and outside unenclosed patio areas. Learn more about CA Labor Code 6404.5 here.

  • Businesses: Smoking is strictly prohibited in businesses such as restaurants, pool halls, bingo parlors, movie theaters, bowling alleys and private, social, fraternal and gaming clubs
  • Inside Homes: If a person's residence is used for a medical and/or child care facility, then smoking is prohibited during the hours of operation. The labor code does allow local governments or property managers to enact stronger smoke free housing policy. Contact TCPP or your local city hall for more information
  • Outdoors: The Smoke Free Workplace Law (LC 6404.5) does not regulate smoking in outdoor areas (such as parks, beaches, service lines, and outdoor dining areas). However, it does allow local governments or property managers to enact smoke free outdoor policy. Contact TCPP or your local city hall for more information.
  • NOTE: TCPP can only address alleged violations occurring in Los Angeles County. If the violation occurred outside of Los Angeles County you can browse our links page or contact your local health department for more information.
