So that brings up a question.That's by choice. If I'm in a situation where I'm being attacked, I really don't care what my employer "allows." I'm going to defend myself and let the chips fall where they may (as it pertains to the job). I really don't get that mentality.
So if employers are supposed to have some reasonable level of work place safety for their employees, how does that apply to employees that are sent out in the field to work in an “uncontrolled” environment? If the employer is not providing “security” for the employee when they are ‘off the reservation’ and the employee is on their own, how can an employee be fired for defending themselves when attached while on the job? Seems to me that would be a wrongful termination that would gather an immediate lawsuit from the termed employee?
If you were to go to a conference at a hotel somewhere that was job related and you were being paid to attend, your carrying your firearm as you are not on company property and you use your weapon legally to defend yourself. What grounds do they really have to terminate you? I know my HR is almost unbelievable in terms of ”forgiveness” and not wanting to terminate unless all the I’s are dotted and all tht T’s are crossed and the paper trail on the person is really a lot as they are scared of being sued. I know there are offenses that are grounds for immediate termination but I can’t see how someone that is being attacked gets the axe for defending themselves?
What says the legal eagles on here?
