Description
GUNS AND THE WORKPLACE: WHO SPEAKS FOR THE EMPLOYER?

It’s hard to think of a more controversial, emotional and perhaps polarizing issue than the right in many states of an employee to lawfully carry a weapon for protection when traveling to and from work, and to safely store that weapon in his or her private vehicle while at work. Employers must respect this right, while also recognizing their responsibility to provide a safe and healthy workplace for not only employees, but also customers, vendors and members of the public. In addition, there is a movement to expand the right of all qualified citizens to carry a concealed weapon in all public areas, including restaurants, commercial facilities, places of entertainment, and even religious institutions and college and university campuses. There are vocal advocates on both sides of these issues, but who speaks for the Employer who may feel caught in the middle?

Presented by Jaffe Dickerson, shareholder at Littler Mendelson. Jaffe is a specialist in labor and employment law for over 30 years. He represents public and private sector employers in all aspects of labor and employment law before state and federal administrative agencies and courts. He will discuss:

1. GUNS IN THE PARKING LOT

2. VENDORS, CUSTOMERS AND MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC

3. DUTY TO PROVIDE A SAFE AND HEALTHY WORK ENVIRONMENT FOR EMPLOYEES; LIABILITY FOR INJURY TO THIRD PARTIES

4. TRAINING FOR MANAGERS, SUPERVISORS AND STAFF

5. DEALING WITH INCIDENTS

6. GUNS IN THE WORKPLACE: EMPLOYER POLICY GUIDELINES AND CONSIDERATIONS

    Very good presentation. Working on a Federal Gov't installation you get used to guns not being allowed on the property. It's good to know that these same restrictions can be made in the private sector with good preparation. Thank you. 5 / 5
