    My company policy?

    No CCW in office,
    No CCW in parking lot,
    No CCW at Company functions,
    No CCW in car during work hours-off or on site.

    I work at a local family-owned gun shop.

    I also am prohibited from carrying while working. The most I can do is carry to and from work, but I have to unload and put my gun in the safe before my shift starts.

    However, I do carry knives and I keep my magazines on me and I always make sure a full-size 1911 is in close proximity. I'll provide the ammo.

    I also don't mind showing off my empty holster. I love it when people ask me why I'm not carrying.

    It's certainly not my idea.

    Over 40,000 - employee handbook clearly states no firearms. I really should quit and be a man of my principles... Then again I'm a short-timer and will likely retire in two years. So I think I'll sacrifice my principles until

    About 1500 or so. Here is what you won't believe. I work for a Government Agency, not LEA, it is in California, and my office is a Government Building. Believe it or not, NO PROHIBITION ON CARRYING!

    Self-employed here, I guess that makes me the boss and I require myself to ccw as much as I possibly can.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    350 at our plant. 150,000 worldwide. Tree hugging, save the whales, and every other cause is embraced. No guns, no way.

    My wife and I own the company, she also writes the checks, so I tell everyone that I work for her.

    Including us, 6 full time employees, and yes I carry when at all possible.

    Sometimes owning your own company sucks, but hey at least I get to make the rules.

    I work at a small day care, 11 people, including the owner. Not only are we not allowed to ccw, we are not to talk about weapons, carry knives, or allow the children to "play guns", as in, they can't point and say "bang, bang."

    Over 30,000 employees at the Air Logistics Center where I work.
    19,000 of them are in the same building that I work in.
    NO GUNS ALLOWED and they mean it.

    ITT, worldwide. Workplace is on a military base, so no carry here on the job.

    You work at a gun shop & they don't let you carry? Do the owners carry?

    The gun shops I've seen here in DFW, all the employees open carry. In fact, I have a friend that used to work part time at one of them. Apparently, some Darwin award nominees tried to rob the place one day. Let's just say that it didn't work out like they planned.

    I work for 3M. Not sure exactly how many employees worldwide. But I figure it takes a lot to make Post-it Notes and Scotch tape. Oh, and no carry at work. Not even allowed to have a firearm locked in the vehicle in the parking lot.

    Forgot to say. I work at a place that is off limits as per state law. So, no carry at work. The parking lot is OK (for now). Some state law makers are trying to get it to where an employer can forbid you from leaving a gun in your car while on company property, even locked in a case. I hope it doesn't pass.

    Where I work it actually off site from the main part. It's about 20 people here & probably over 1000 employees locally, many more nationally.

    My employer is HUGE and they don't approve of CCW..

    ..but I carry anyway. :)

    I often need to walk a few blocks through a rather ugly section of Atlanta to get to my car in the middle of the night. I'm not working there without my Seecamp in my pocket. It's just that simple. My life is worth more than my job. Glad my Seecamp is so discreet!
