Questions on DHCP Filtering via MAC address

Is there a way block DHCP from serving a lease out to someone by using a MAC address list or filter? I've checked Google, and other DHCP sites with no luck on this.

My sales people (who mostly carry laptops) have somewhat open access to DHCP and the Internet (outgoing; not incoming) and I wanted to restrict it a bit from outside vendors so sales would have to go through me to get it turned on.

Kind of like what I do for Wireless Access with a MAC Address list.

Is there an equivalent for DHCP?

Here's a sample of my dhcpd.conf :
host maillard {
hardware ethernet 000:59:CC:F8:B0;
fixed-address maillard;
option broadcast-address;
option routers aracaju;

Maybe you can use fixed-address so that the dhcp client gets an invalid IP...
