There are now 22 states that guarantee employees the right to possess firearms while commuting to work and to store them in their locked vehicles while at work. Regardless of personal views on this legal trend, easy access to firearms near or on company property can increase the potential for employee violence as a visceral reaction to anything from simple interpersonal conflicts in the workplace to the imposition of disciplinary action.

The faculty presenting this program will discuss the new security challenges presented by the presence of guns in employee vehicles. Because access to firearms by employees raises concerns about the potential for violence in the workplace, this program will offer practical, proactive recommendations for new protocols that support an employer's strong interest and legal duty to provide a safe and healthy workplace. The faculty will not only provide an overview of the current state of the law regarding guns and the workplace but will also include tips on developing policies, procedures, and protocols to maintain a safe workplace or business.

Educational Objectives:

• Become familiar with the patchwork of state laws that govern the possession of firearms in public and the challenges they may create for employers, especially employers who do business in numerous states and retailers with workplaces that are open to the public.

• Develop protocols to train managers, supervisors and employees on warning signs of potential workplace violence.

• Establish security protocols for on-site personnel actions such as suspensions and terminations.
