I asked a question here about vaping: What should my company's policy be about "vaping"?
I realize that there are a lot of opinions about it. Rather than get my boss and others involved, I want to approach a co-worker directly about his vaping.
At first, I told him I didn't have a problem with it when he asked. But his "vaping" has increased greatly. We share an office and it's getting unbearable.
I recently realized it was illegal to "vape" in the workplace where I live. My company doesn't have a specific policy on it. We are a small company and have an "employee hand book".
How can I approach my co-worker and politely ask him to stop vaping?
I want to be nice about it because we will continue to work together often. I feel he will be reasonable, so I don't think it will be necessary to get others involved. However, I know that others in my office vape (but they have their own office). I prefer they didn't, but don't know how to stop it. My immediate concern is my office mate. I don't want to use the law as my rationale, but will report them if necessary.
