    As long as it is a federal building the answer is no.

    concealed carry in unemployment office

    I work at a National Park and that's a Federal office. NO CC unless you want to end up in jail.

    What part of NO guns in a Federal building does one not understand?

    I think the OP needs to go to a gun class and learn about his local and federal laws...

    Just sayin but this kind of question makes me suspect the OP is not up on his regs.

    Correct - unemployment compensation is managed at the state level. However, YOUR state may have its own rules about weapons - concealed or otherwise - in government buildings.

    You were given an excellent reference in Post #4 in this thread. Please read it, and if you still have questions, post back.

    I was unsure as well here in Utah I was pretty sure the unemployment office or Workforce Services is state run not federal. I would not have even considered it a federal building. In fact in state government buildings here they cannot restrict you from carrying. You can carry right in the capital building open or concealed.

    If it is indeed a federal building then carrying is not permitted.
