    XXXXXXX specifically prohibits the possession of
    weapons by any employee while on company property
    or that of a client's. The ban includes keeping or
    transporting a weapon in a vehicle in a parking area,
    whether public or private.
    Employees are also prohibited
    from carrying a weapon while performing services off the
    client's business premises.

    Jesus christ :rofl:

    What do they define as a weapon? Is a pocket knife a weapon, what about mace or a taser? you should email them and ask about that policy, especially if you do not plan on applying with them.

    Ask them how they can justify it with the Heller decision.

    what was the job? doesnt really seem that unreasonable, keeps them from being liable for any mistakes a dumbass employee might make if they shoot some one.

    I like Missouri. I am allowed to keep a weapon in my car, wherever it may be parked. State law. :)

    Weapons include guns, knives, explosives, and other items
    with the potential to inflict harm. Appropriate disciplinary
    action, up to and including termination, will be taken
    against any employee who violates this policy.

    this isn't the least bit new, alarming, illegal, or unusual.

    I've never seen a company ban weapons from being in your CAR in a public parking lot or street. They will fire you if you park on the public street with a gun in your car and walk to work. :rofl:

    :dunno:

    judging by the context, you're expected to use your vehicle for work (referring to the bit about the client). In that case....yeah nothing unusual there.

    If this is a deciding factor for where you decide to work, you qualify as a gun nut

    Those policies are only used as blankets to get rid of shitty workers

    Be a good worker and you can do what you want.

    we have shaving your head banned, but everyone does it.

    Looks word for word like Siemens policy.

    Both my employer(Siemens) and the hospital we work out of prohibit have a firearm in your vehicle on company property. I believe Siemens goes as far as saying you can't even have it in your vehicle on your way to work even if you park off of company property.

    It's their property. They have a right to set their own policy on it. Yo ucan carry there, you won't be breaking the law but they do have the right to fire you for it.

    how can they police you driving a gun to and from work if you leave the gun in your car and it's NOT on company grounds?

    it's not like they can search your car

    even if your car is on company grounds i reckon it take some legal paperwork to allow them to search your car

    I think you guys are missing the point. It is company policy, just like any other rules a company may have, like no iPods or radios while working. They can't search your car but if you are caught with one, they are reserving the right to terminate you.

    This is a GOOD thing. Businesses should have the freedom to decide what can be brought by employees and what can't. If you don't like it, find a new job. The government shouldn't be able to force a buisness to let an employee bring his dog/ipod/gun to work if the owner of the business doesn't want it there. It is their property after all.

    Personally I'd make all my employees sing "I'm a little teapot" once a day because it would make me giggle.

    Fuck that. Your car is your castle not theirs. They don't own the roads between your house and the company so fuck them. Also because I live in a state not full of nazi's this policy is illegal. :wiggle:

    Until it violates the second amendment or another right guaranteed to citizens of the United sStates under the bill of rights. My employer let's say, ban's me from bringing in a rosary, is that a good thing? Gun owners know the slope is slippery, that's why we don't like to take one foot of our sure ground.:wavey:
