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.

I prefer to be judged by 12 then carried by 6
someone said that an unemloyment office isn't a federal building at all, but a county or state office.
You were given an excellent reference in Post #4 in this thread. Please read it, and if you still have questions, post back.

Dept. of Workforce Services in Arkansas are state offices, so carry -concealed or open - is prohibited there.
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.
See Item 10, I think that answers your question.

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