Do you violate policy?
Do you violate your companies "No-firearms" policy? Reasons why you do or don't? Personally I do, because legally speaking I am OK if I we're to use it in defense. Life over job I always say. I work at a restaurant, I keep my pocket P3AT concealed and no one knows the better.
Luckily we have not had a robbery. We're in an area tho where a few businesses around us have been robbed at gunpoint. I'm always on condition yellow while at work, and ready to retreat and draw if needed.

I don't violate my office's "no firearms" policy because I work for myself and I don't impose such a policy on myself.

Well, I am currently unemployed, so my company policy is that everyone that can be armed will be armed.

Reason why not---when I was working (I'm recently retired) I was employed in a Federal Building. I believe it would have been a felony to violate the no firearms restrictions.
In point of fact though, our local management and most of our employees were hunters, target shooters, CHL holders, and were it not for the global anti-gun policy, none of them would have been concerned if employees had guns in their cars, or packed concealed.
And it should have been allowed in the aftermath of 9/11 until more was known about the extent of the problem.

My company doesn't have a written "firearm" policy, so as far as I know I am good to go.

Their concern for my personal safety ends at the hardhat, reflective vest, and fall protection.
Workplace violence is frowned upon, but nothing they can do about it until after the fact, and any attacks on my personal well being from outside the companies employee base, again nothing they can do.
Theft of company equipment is getting worse, and one day when I am on a job site after hours, I am going to witness it. Whether the thieves want to run or not leave witnesses behind is beyond my control.
My response to anyone who remotely suspects I carry "I am a mechanic, I have nothing but tools."

Our policy is "no unauthorized weapons". My carry permit is authorized by the cheif of the state police, so I guess I'm okay??? Or should I ask HR? NOT!!!

Just to cover my rear, I'm not voting cuz the poll isn't anonymous.

Better to be unemployed than dead.
I edited the poll to be private, nosey IT people and all that.
So far in the 4 years I've been carrying, the only time I've needed my gun was while I was on the clock.
Screw policy, I'm coming home at the end of the day.

No, but only because to do so for me is to violate Federal Law and would land me in the brig.
Also, my workplace tends to be pretty safe while in CONUS

Nope, but I don't need to. Its against company policy for me to be unarmed, and at my side job...well, I own the joint; so I'd fire me if I showed up unarmed.

Work on fed property...NOPE! But I park on the city street, so I'm good until I walk on.
