Should Managers Be Armed in the Workplace?

Understand the benefits, disadvantages, and considerations associated with arming managers or prohibiting managers from carrying firearms in the workplace.

At a time when workplace and other shootings seem to dominate the news cycle on a regular basis, every employer wants to understand what the law requires, and what steps can be taken to create a safe working environment. But the laws governing workplace violence are less than clear, and almost every potential option for attempting to reduce workplace violence has numerous pros and cons, leaving employers wondering what they should do. Arming managers - a potential solution that has been receiving media attention - is no different. This topic helps employers explain the legal landscape governing the obligation to provide a safe working environment and discusses several options, aside from arming managers that allow employers to meet that obligation. This information is critical for employers looking to make informed decisions about the best measures for reducing the risk of workplace violence.
