To Post or Not to Post - Regulations on Guns & Weapons in the Workplace


Meeting Description:

A trend getting a lot more attention based on recent events is the regulation of guns and weapons in the workplace, and the corresponding postings or signage businesses need to display to communicate their policies.

Twenty-five states have enacted some type of legislation addressing guns at work. Typically, these laws are designed to protect employees' individual rights to possess firearms, and vary from state to state, making it tough for employers operating in multiple states.

What you will learn in this webinar:
  •  Which states have 'guns-at-work' laws and what these laws mean  for employers
  •  Gun law/policy notifications & notices - what and when to post
  •  How to communicate your gun policy to employees in a way that  reassures them of their rights and safety
