from my standpoint, many of your rights were violated. Bank violated your right to privacy by even calling your place of employment.

make an appointment with the bank manager and have a sit down with him/her.
Have your Lawyer sit down with them.

I am under the impression you were not carrying at the time just asking the bank for their opinion on open carry?

IANAL but my guess is that since the bank records said where you work, the had to use private information to know where to contact. By contacting the employer with information about you beyond banking transactions between the bank and the place of employment (your paycheck) there is a possible second violation.

Why ask? If they aren't posted and it's not against the law, you're GTG. A bank employee's opinion doesn't mean squat one way or the other. If you want to ask someone's opinion call the AG. As they say - always carry, never tell (or ask). Don't see a violation of privacy here - employer name on the check and no privileged communication btwn bank and customer.

I had some problems following your post but it appears you were trying to discuss the bank's policy on customers open carrying in the establishment. Why?? :confused:

If your employer terminates you for this you may have a case.

I would consult an attorney.

For the time being I would just I would just go back to work. Now if the telephone call from the bank employee gets you fired, that is when you need to talk to an attorney. The bank employee had no business calling your employer.

Maybe a telephone call from an attorney to the human resources department where you work might be a good start. In this case, consulting with an attorney might be a wise move all the same. I'm still at a loss as to why a bank employee would call your employer.

Just so it was a privately owned bank your GTG, unless it was federally owned you have no need to ask their thoughts or view
