Tamam v. Ghanem

A pregnant secretary quit her position at an attorney's office because the attorney refused to enforce a non-smoking policy in the office, in violation of a smoke free law. The court treated her resignation as if she was forced to leave and ordered the employer to pay compensation for violations of both employment laws and the smoke free law.
