In their national presentation addressing the issue of guns in the workplace, labor and employment attorneys Philip Bruce and Charlie Plumb review workplace violence trends and statistics in the United States, discuss employers’ legal obligations for providing a reasonably safe working environment from ‘recognized hazards,’ and provide practical advice for maintaining a safe workplace while complying with state gun laws. The webinar includes an overview of how various U.S. states have addressed the issue of guns on company property, including the accommodation of employees with safety sensitive issues (such as domestic violence issues, restraining orders, and harassment), ‘parking lot laws’ that allow guns in locked automobile trunks, and states with laws that allow employers to determine their own firearms policies.
