    I do not know if company policy is going to make much difference if you are dead or badly hurt because you could not defend yourself?

    If you are robbed or mugged the company may not stand with you?

    You may become a liability to be gotten rid of and out of the way of profit.

    4. Carry concealed against company policy.

    I do think a group of three people closing a store would be a less desirable target than only two people. While this is small comfort, I do think it is an improvement.
    i like #1-3 my #4 would be Defensive Knife.... carry the pepper spray on your hip and draw the attention of your management give them the choice concealed gun... or open carry pepper spray....

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    I haven't read all the threads but I would just carry in your case. Better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

    Wink Assumption of the risk is the rebuttal at law....

    Im not lawyer(yet), but should you get into an altercation where deadly force is acceptable under Florida statute, you are immune from civil suit, but not firing from your company. Thats where it gets complicated as to whether you'd want to fork out a bunch of money to sue for your job when the company didnt much give a crap for your safety in the first place. If you were shot/stabbed(god forbid), you could be entitled to damages from the company.

    So, pick your battle. Its either with the company or that jive mofo Ray-Ray.
    Yeah but when I went to law school over 20 years ago, the doctrine of foreseeability can cut both ways. Yes there is a foreseeable risk but the rules were made clear before employment was accepted. So if you work there you accept the risk and that pretty much clears the employer. It's like taking a seat at a ball game along the foul line. You ASSUME the RISK for the choice of seating as you might get hit by a foul ball. That was actually one of the cases I had in law school where we learned about "assumption of the risk."

    I would listen to this advice. My friend grew up in a bad part of FL. They set people on fire there. Yeah, there are not job around so tough it out and protect yourself.

    This is what the old geezers call cutting your teeth. Hopefully you will be rewarded in time.
