Restriction of Firearms in the Workplace

In light of recent mass-shootings, questions have been raised regarding firearms in the workplace. New Jersey already has some of the strictest firearms laws in the United States.  Presently it is illegal to own or possess ammunition magazines in New Jersey that hold more than 15 rounds.  Concealed carry permits are issued in extremely limited situations and only when the individual can show a “justifiable need.”  Unlike several other states, employers in New Jersey are free to create policies preventing employees from bringing firearms onto the employer’s place of business.  This limitation can extend to areas such as parking lots, thereby preventing employees from keeping weapons in their car.  For more information or for workplace policies on the subject, please contact our office.
