On March 15, the Texas Senate passed SB 321 making it poised to become the 14th state to force employers to permit workers to possess guns on company property. In Indiana, which passed its own guns-at-work law last year, a new law effective July 1 will make it easier for workers to sue their employer if it violates their legal rights to possess firearms on company property.

Do you have employees in any of the states that now allow workers to maintain guns in their vehicles at work? Have you appropriately adjusted employment applications? Questions asked in pre-employment interviews? Policies governing workplace investigations? Security procedures? Company policies on workplace violence and weapons?

Led by legal and workplace violence experts, you will receive actionable advice on what you can and should do (and not do) as a result of this dynamic situation.

This 90-minute training recording will help your organization address and give you solutions to these critical questions:

  • Are you in compliance? Although there are marked differences between state laws, the program will detail the practical responses employers should take as a result of the shifting legal environment.
  • Are you ready for the new threat? Gun rights activists are using public businesses as a forum to test the limits of gun rights—brazenly conducting “open carry” experiments in retail establishments.
  • Are you prepared? Active shooter events at work are rare but planning for them is the only way to mitigate the potential carnage from a mass shooting event.

In addition, you will also learn:

  1. The rights employers generally have to prohibit firearms on their property  and actions they may need to take to lawfully assert them
  2. Legal challenges being made to employer’s rights to restrict firearms and an overview of relevant statutes/regulations that pertain to limitations on employers’ to restrict firearms in the workplace
  3. Implications of “guns at work” laws for employers, including for job applications forms and workplace investigations
  4. Implications of the “open carry” movement, including training for managers, store employees, and security to handle situations and assert their legal rights
  5. Specific steps to cover in an active shooter response plan and the keys  to success in each step
  6. How to train workers on the active shooter threat and alert them in an event
  7. Specific steps a facility should take to coordinate with local law enforcement to improve or coordinate response in the event of an active shooter
  8. Planning steps to effectively deal with the immediate aftermath of a rampage shooter (tending to victims, facilitating medical response, etc.)
  9. Active physical security measures that are effective to limit the deadly tally of an active shooter
  10. How to test your ability to respond to an active shooter incident, including performance measures to show whether you’re as ready as you can be
  11. Workplace security measures to consider as a result of new guns-at-work laws.
  12. Training armed security guards for active shooter response
  13. Immediate steps to contain an active shooter
