    Haven't seen the lawsuit details, but I can't imagine deliberate and repeated breach of company policies could be construed by any judge or jury as being lack of justification for termination. Probably spelled out right in the employee manual, which it's almost certain she signed and agreed to.

    If so ... cope.

    Viewed another way: the only person who could have kept Ms. Ros from getting fired is Ms. Ros.

    Looks like she's terminated and will most likely waste her money on the attorney. She should have kept her lips closed.

    She opened her mouth when she should have kept it closed. On the day in question, she wasn't carrying it in the facility. She should have left it at that. She then admitted to carrying it in the facility on previous occasions. That's what they will indicate the termination was for, not it being in her car. She will waste her money and lose the case because she opened her mouth.

    Idiot. I don't feel sorry for anyone that
    1. Knowingly breaks the rules
    2. Is too stupid to realize she needed to keep her mouth shout

    And now you sue?

    Thanks for wasting the courts time. Idiot.

    She didn't want her job and realizes the bank will do some bean-counting and maybe settle for less than it would cost to go to trail.

    Or she's an idiot.

    Hey, would you carry at work?

    Hey, isn't it about time for one of those "Would you carry to work if your employer prohibited carrying at work?" threads?

    Uh....I wouldn't.

    Counterpoint: and W-F probably actually believes it's a safer place having one fewer folks around capable of defending themselves. It's not as though the truly explosive sorts won't already have their weaponry in their cars, if not on their persons. W-F just cut the ability of staff to survive a situation by a notch, no matter how you slice it. Irrespective of the justifiability of termination for breach of policy.

    How did they do that since the lady said that she mostly left it in her car?

    "Mostly" is mostly. Am presuming that she carried, from time to time, in her purse and otherwise as she suggested. And I'm presuming others (around the company) have as well, though this termination will likely have a chilling effect. Doesn't make folks safer. Just makes fewer good guys with the means of surviving available on the inside.

    She will probably lose. The employee manual prohibits employees from carrying on company premises. Unfortunately she admitted to carrying in the past. That will most likely be where the company will stand on her termination. Her lawyer requested a jury trial, because he probably is hoping to get the "human" factor involved. A judge will just look at the policy and her actions. No contest there. For her sake I hope she gets her job back and learns from the mistake.
