Couldn't have said it much better. Unless the company is going to provide each employee with an armed escort to and from work, they should not be allowed to prevent an employee from protecting themselves on those journeys.

Kansas is relatively new to the CCH business having passed their CCH law in 2006 and taking effect on January 3, 2007. It became quickly apparent that there were loopholes in the law as cities started passing local ordinances against CCH so the legislature introduced and passed, and then over-rode the Governors veto, HB2528. Among other clarifications, one of the parts of HB2528 is (from the AG's web page):
Also changed with HB 2528, business owners (both public and private) may continue to post their buildings to restrict the concealed carry of firearms, but parking lots are no longer allowed to be posted.So far, I've heard of no challenges to the law and hope there are none but if there are, I hope the AG fights the challenge all the way.
Employers, both public and private, may continue to restrict a licensed
employee’s ability to carry concealed while they are performing the duties of their employ, but licensed employees are allowed to store their firearm in their private means of conveyance, even if parked on company property.
