Guns in the Workplace in Alabama

Ian Scott on Friday, March 27, 2009 at 11:50:33 pm

Proposed legislation in Alabama would prevent employers from establishing rules the prohibit firearms in workplace parking lots.  This highly politicized issue has both property rights and workplace safety ramifications. 

1036905_gunAs of now, at least eight states: Alaska, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Mississippi and Oklahoma, have statutes that prohibit employers from banning weapons on their own property.  State legislatures in Ohio and Indiana have previously considered and rejected legislation restricting business owners from banning guns in the workplace.
