Guns in the Workplace with Jake Charles

On this week’s episode of SHRM’s All Things Work podcast, we’re discussing the very complex issue of guns in the workplace. Much of the complexity is rooted in the fact that each state is responsible for enacting its own laws about guns and the places gun owners are allowed to bring them, including the workplace and company parking lots. What that means for employers is that they’re bound by the laws of the state where they operate, which results in a complex legal picture at a time when employers are striving to keep their employees safe.Joining us to discuss guns in the workplace is Jake Charles. Jake is a Lecturing Fellow and Executive Director of the Center for Firearms Law at Duke University. He also writes and teaches on the Second Amendment and gun laws.On this episode of All Things Work, listen in to hear host Tony Lee and Jake discuss what HR professionals should know about gun laws, gun rights and how they can help prevent workplace shootings while recognizing the Second Amendment rights of their employees.Please subscribe to All Things Work on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Spotify, Stitcher, TuneIn or wherever you listen to podcasts.
