Allowed; I carry
Allowed; I don't carry inside
I moved halfway across the country recently and had to make a temporary change of jobs out of law enforcement. I plan to be back in full-time LE by the end of the year, once I get my certification worked out and go through some hiring processes. Until then, I have a job that doesn't allow carry at work or allow firearms on company property. I don't carry at work, but I refuse to be disarmed when traveling between home and work, and for any stops I make. I keep my gun locked in a safe in my car and park just off company property. Missouri doesn't have any legislation I have been able to find that allows for guns in vehicles in violation of employer policy.
Kansas does have such legislation, but where I work is in Missouri. Given what I have found about about my company though, I suspect they would fire someone for having a gun in the car in Kansas and then just settle the lawsuit if someone sued. I don't much care for my job, and while I have no desire to get fired, I might be willing to be the test case if I worked in Kansas. I'd much rather have their money and not have to work for them.
Throughout my law enforcement career I have had some side jobs that didn't allow for carry. I never carried in my employers building, but I always had a gun locked in my car. In one case I would come to work (unarmed) security at a hospital straight from my LE job. They knew I was a full-time cop, and they knew I came straight there from my full-time job. I am sure my bosses knew I had a gun in my car, they never asked, and I never told.

As stated in my other thread, I'm self-employed, so I would definitely allow it. But I am in a shared building, and as I don't have my permit yet, carrying from my car (legal) into my office (legal) would take me through about 100 yards of shared space (third degree felony). So no, but soon, yes.
Is it legal to have a 'no guns allowed' policy in general but give special permission to certain CHL holding employees that would allow them to carry?

I own a parking lot stripping business, that is why I carry. Many times I'm working alone in the evening and early in the morning and started carrying because I have been approached by people that I do not feel comfortable being in a dark parking lot alone with.
My boss is an avid shooter with many many guns of his own. He has a CCW but does not carry regularly because he goes in and out of many businesses that are our customers all the time. I think it's not worth losing business over to him. But he allows carry at work as long as it stays concealed and customers don't see it. Many times the back room has guns laid out being cleaned after a lunch break session at the range. I am still waiting for my CCW to come in the mail so I can carry at work.

I am self employed so I carry when possible, some of my clients are in locations that do not allow it though, so I lock it in the trunk.

I don't know, I've never asked. My bosses know I carry though and a couple of my coworkers will be getting their CHLs this spring.

My employer does not allow it. I will not test the waters because having the means to provide for my kids will always come first.

The awesome thing about Utah? With a CFP, a person can carry in/on school properties. I'm a professor at a small regional university and I conceal carry everyday. While it may sound corny, I feel that I have an obligation to my students to protect them from possible harm.
