    sweet! I'm hoping when I get my employee handbook for my new job in two weeks I come across the same findings. Then I'll finally have a good reason to get a LCP or P3AT (don't wanna carry my M&P9c in business casual).

    I wish I could carry at work, but I cannot. I work in a Federal building. I keep it in the car.

    In my employee handbook under a section titled "Workplace Violence";

    "We do not allow firearms, weapons, and any other dangerous or hazardous devices and substances on the premises of the company without prior written authorization from the company's president, and it must be legal for you to possess said item."

    Attached to the back of the handbook was a detachable "request for consent" form to carry at work, open or concealed.

    +1 Would be smart to keep the gun mags off your desk/workspace and stay off DC at work.

    Sounds like they might want to know just who would want to carry at work. By offering the request is a easy way to find out.

    good job, like others said....don't do anything that will cause management to review things and possibly change the policies
    I have to ask.....if you'll be carrying in your personal vehicle and company vehicle.....why not carry on your person at the job sites also?

    The owner carries and this is his way of limiting his liability by having a pro gun office.

    My company has written a policy around the state law - they prohibit carrying INSIDE company facilities and in company cars, but allow you to have your weapon in your locked car in the parking lot.

    I'm also blessed with a job that doesn't restrict. Doesn't specifically allow, but doesn't restrict. I carry in clients homes all the time. No legal issues in Utah. Gotta love it.

    Sounds good to me. A Supervisor for the company that I work for ust got his CCW. Strict "NO GUN" policy. Sup dresses differently.
