I agree with trunks1701
My job has the same policy, no weapons on your person while working. Even though I have a CCW permit, I still have to obey the policy for that beloved paycheck.
Cases like this is where stupid case law is created. No case here, regardless of what you are legally able to do, if you hire on and in doing so YOU agree to all policies as a condition of employment you either abide by them or go somewhere else where you do like ALL of the policies. Because the "wrong judge" in this case could rule intothis a lot of tthings that aren't really there
Rights afforded to you by the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights trump company policy any day of the week. I'm sick and tired of being politically correct and worrying that someone might get offended or scared but this is how I feel .The wussification of AMERICA continues and it makes me sick. She had no business being fired end of story... She was properly licensed and was within her rights.
I also bump Irishcop.I have been carrying since retirement,as allowed by LB281.I however have to leave it in my vehicle when I enter my place of employment if I wish to keep my job.
Can't stand WF. Great if she wins but she has a huge uphill battle to climb. Bump Irishcop.
Not only that guys, The weapon was suppose to be concealed. She brandished that weapon because it was seen. That was not concealed. That's why she was turned in.
I understand her reasoning. However, You are at a bank. Just like at the pawn shop their clerks walk around with a weapon all day. Alert other administrators and just because you see it in a book get a clearance. Just don't assume you have the rights to just have your weapon anyplace let alone at a bank. Some people fill threatened by them and maybe the bank feels more threatened with her having it. I'm sure by now they have watched her attitude. I wouldn't lose my job over it. And if its in the book and management don't like it they need to change the language. (my take)
Policy is policy.
Hope she wins!!
