Unhappy second hand smoke

I work in N. Las Vegas, NV and we are a small office. My boss says he has the legal right to smoke in the office because he pays the rent. Is this correct or do I have a recourse to stop the action.

I stopped smoking 7 years ago after my roommate dies of lung cancer and his smoking is effecting my breathing, don't care if I get fired I just want to save the next persons lungs.

Thanks

Re: second hand smoke

The 2006 Nevada Clean Indoor Air Act bans smoking statewide in all enclosed workplaces.

Unless it's actually your bosses' place of residence, I don't see how "paying the rent" makes a difference.

Re: second hand smoke

Oh yes, i understand what you are saying about the second hand smoke.
My dear mother never smoked a day in her life and was recently diagnosed with emphysema.

You have every right speaking up to this Boss of yours, owner or not he is effecting your Health.
