Employer prohibiting firearms lock in car
« on: July 09, 2016, 04:18:55 PM »
I recall hearing the law in Texas states employers by company policy can restrict handguns on any controlled premise, but can not restrict a LTC individual from leaving in a locked personally owned vehicle even if that parking structure is owned by the employer,  So the questions becomes, is there a legal response to disciplinary action or wrongful termination case if someone is fired?  Or is this a case you can exercise  your rights, but if you get fired not much you can do, since its your lively hood.

That is the law in Texas but there are some exclusions (schools and petrochemical plants being 2 I can think of right off)and as I understand there is no penalty written in the law so some refer to it as a "paper tiger". It might be used to claim unjust firing, but only if they actually said that was the reason.
