Description:

It goes without saying that you want your workplace to be safe for all. Accordingly, you may have established rules that prohibit all weapons at work, including knives and guns.

But many states have passed “parking lot” laws, which give employees the right to keep their guns in the locked trunks of their cars during work hours, even if the car is parked in an employer’s parking lot.

Join us for a comprehensive overview of the impact local gun laws can have on your workplace policies and how to take steps to ensure a safe workplace for all, while protecting gun owners’ rights.

You’ll learn:

  • The impact “parking lot laws” have on what an employer can and can’t do with respect to policies addressing weapons at work
  • Which states currently have “parking lot laws” on their books and what those laws generally entail
  • Parking-lot law limits, so you’ll better understand what you can and can’t require of employee gun owners
  • Whether an unloaded gun is still considered a weapon
  • How to set a company policy that is clear and well-displayed for visitors and employees regarding weapons possession on site
  • Whether you have to allow employees to lock a gun in the trunk of a company-owned vehicle
  • Best practices for performing background checks on prospective hires to protect your company from liability under negligence laws
  • How to set up safety policies, such as emergency preparation training, so employees know what to do in case of a shooting
  • Whether you are allowed to ask employees if they have guns in their cars
  • Laws that allow gun owners to take civil action against their employers for violating gun laws
  • And much more!

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
