Violence in the Workplace

There is a terrific three part blog in the Alabama Employment Law Reporter (here, here and here) on guns and violence in the workplace. In part 3, they report that the Alabama Senate has passed a bill by a vote of 26-2, that would permit employees to keep legal firearms in their vehicles on company premises so long as they are locked out of sight, such as in the glove compartment or trunk. For some reason, electric utilities are exempted. (See my discussion of guns in the workplace at page 277-278 of my Emerging Employment Issues Paper here.)
