    If I'm not mistaken (and I'm not), in FL your employer cannot restrict you from having a weapon in your vehicle. Even if you don't carry it on the job, you still can keep it in your vehicle which means that you have it should something happen should take place when making the nightly deposit. Although, if it was as you describe, I'd carry anyway and would probably already be looking for a new job.

    My Question is would you deploy your weapon if some one

    the deposit .
    at the company that instituted that policy is asking for serious trouble. Someone with a 'set' at the company needs to question the sanity of such a policy, and using that 'set', if needed, should make an investigation into the statutes that speak to such a policy. OSHA rules come to mind here...... The rules are easily researched. If your business is exempt, then there are perhaps other avenues for help. I find congressional representatives somewhat useful at times.

    for sure .The thing we are starting to see here is even after

    If they are still unhappy after you give them the money then here's is what i would do.... Give them the money and use it as a distraction that is your chance to A.) Escape or B.) Defend yourself.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    Would I break the law concerning CCW? No!
    Would I break company policy concerning CCW? In your situation, yes!

    Keep in mind, you won't have to worry about company policy anymore if you're dead.

    i know there have been cases of employees taking a backup computer tape home at night, getting into an accident and claiming workmans comp becuase they were performing a work duty by taking the backup home (weak but creative)....i just am not certain this scenario is all work related...
    If you are the manager, change the policy, otherwise you are just an employee.

    As manager, either carry a gun or hire Brinks to handle your banking deliveries.

    Night deposits, after hours are not normal duties, you don't use a company car, and you are not on the clock. If the company is an _ss then you be a man and use your authority.

    The real sad thing about this is: The company prefers a dead employee to a "possible" law suit by the BG or BG's family.

    I manage a large hotel with the same policy also. I cary everyday. The only way anyone will ever know i have the gun is if my life is in danger. At that point it just a job that can be replaced.
