What rules exist around e-cigarette smokers in the workplace?

Q: One of our employees is an ex-smoker and is now smoking an electronic cigarette instead of tobacco cigarettes. The employee claims that the e-cigarette contains no harmful products and does not emit smoke, but I understood that some of the brands available of these devices do contain nicotine (I am not sure at what concentration).

Are the same restrictions applicable to e-cigarette smokers as those that apply to tobacco smokers? We are based in Victoria.
