Have a Weapons-Free Workplace

Key Points

  • To avoid major acts of violence from occurring on work premises, many employers chose to create weapons-free workplaces at their places of business.
  • When creating a weapons policy, it is important for employers to be aware of all the state laws that regulate weapons rights before drafting the policy. Gun laws vary by state and impact what employers are allowed to do when drafting a policy.
  • Employers should have a written policy that states exactly what weapons are not allowed on the premise and what will happen to someone who does not follow the policy.
