Guns and Weapons in the Retail Workplace

The issue of gun rights for individuals continues to be a hot topic and one that impacts retailers. In this webinar, we will address how to balance individual rights to carry firearms against the rights of retail business and premises owners to prohibit weapons on their properties. We will also discuss how public opinion with respect to gun rights, laws, and prohibitions affects public relations for retail establishments, and provide an update on the legal limitations and signage requirements related to weapons in public spaces and parking lots. Finally, we will outline best practices (including risk assessment and development of policies and procedures), emergency planning, and training to prevent and address violence in the retail workplace.
