Update: as of now I have had no further response from Dominio's. Points I would like to make: 1) Some may consider the driver an independent contractor as all he is doing is delivering a product. Depending on the employment arrangements. 2) I would rather be alive and fired than on a slab. 3) The values of the area will have a huge effect on the final outcome ( conservative vs. liberal) 4) I have a step son who has delivered pizzas for 15 years and I worry about his safety every day. He does not carry. 5) My son just applied for a temp job ( construction) and he must sign a " no guns" agreement or no job.
I am not sure that society "as a whole:" will ever fully accept a persons right to self defense, with a gun, as long liberals refuse to accept that bad people will do bad things and only a gun will stop them.
Wow it's a long way down off this soap box.
In a gun fight, you can not miss fast enough, to catch up.

You do realize we are talking about the problem being COMPANY POLICY here and most businesses are run by CONSERVATIVES don't you?

Sorry dig up a old thread but I'm a Domino's driver (hopefully not for much longer) and I'm considering getting a CCW. Here's what the employee manual (that I read once, about 10 years ago) says:

As you can see, I have no expectation of privacy, even in my own personal vehicle. Corporate policy trumps "shall not be infringed". Mine you, I've had psycho ride inches off my bumper because I cut them off when I was boxed in and trying to exit the highway, been chased at high speed at night by someone with his headlights off for who know what reason, and had someone get out of his car at a light and scream at me because I was a little to close behind him. I called 911 on two of those occasions and the police finally showed up much later. I can't afford to get fired, but I can't afford to be dead even less.

Don't know what the deal is with the asterisks in the quote, but I did and copy-and-paste from their website: https://tmsc.dominos.com/DpDocLib/hr/HB_Store_2012.pdf
Firearms are covered on page 28.

You said it. Personally, I'd be damned if I'd let anybody tell me what I could do in my own vehicle, working or not. I'd also not work at Dominos if I could help it. Lose a job, or lose your life. My life is more important.

The 2nd amendment does not apply to workplaces since the Constitution only applies to the government. An employee has the option of no longer working for a company if they do not like their policies/rules. Many companies have other policies/rules that employees do not like yet they continue to work there. The choice is up to each individual whether it is in their best interest to stay with the company.

As well, in tort law, a company can be liable for the misconduct of the employees. For this reason, the company might be cautious about employees with guns
Mental illness incidents are used to threaten gun rights.
The March of Dimes headed off the Universal Iron Lung coverage debate.
It ended up not only being moral, but wise. Something to consider being proactive about.

The only liability protection provided by Wisconsin statute is for the following actors:
• A person who does not prohibit an individual from carrying a concealed weapon on property that the person owns or occupies is immune from any liability arising from his or her decision.
• An employer who does not prohibit one or more employees from carrying a concealed weapon is immune from any liability arising from that decision.
• A person providing a firearms training course in good faith is immune from liability from any act or omission related to the course if the course is one of the courses listed in statute."

You can then add every chain pizza place to your list as I think they all follow and have the same stupid policy. You the delivery guy are more expendable (they can always find another sucker at minimum wage) than the lawsuit they fear.

It's their football so you kind of have to play by their rules or leave the game. Sorry that's the way it is.
How about a folding baton, pepper spray or a taser. Baseball bats and tire irons will also work in a pinch.

The assailant should have been shot for ordering Dominos!

Better to be tried by 12 then carried by 6...
As has been stated... A pizza delivery job is not a huge career boost anyway...
No way I would NOT carry doing delivery... even if I were a UPS guy...

Believe it or not, I grew up with Domino's CEO and am connected to him on Facebook. I am going to send him a message to ask about this. Will let you know if I hear anything.
