Enter the Crossfire: Can and Should Your Company Ban Guns in the Workplace?

Know your obligations and make informed decisions by knowing the latest developments in gun laws and restrictions.

Whether your company can or should ban guns in the workplace is a controversial issue. While employers want to ensure that they are providing a safe workplace, there are potential risks with both banning guns and not banning guns. While the right to bear arms is rooted in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, guns laws and restrictions continue to evolve and change across the United States. This topic teaches you the latest legal developments in gun laws and restrictions, and employer's corresponding obligations, to help them make informed decisions.
