Yesterday I was in the US office and will be there couple of weeks. Anyways, the HR director gives me the company policies and rules. This is led to a discussion about things I disagreed with. The two big ones were the weapons policy and the alcohol policy. The first thing in the weapons policy was that no weapons were allowed on company property without exception. That didnt make me happy. The next one said that as a condition of employment that the company could search personal effects and vehicles for weapons if suspected and refusal would be termination. That made more more than unhappy. Next up was alcohol. It said that alcohol was not allowed to be consumed on work time and people cant be under the influence on work time. I am OK with that. Then it said that alcohol, like weapons, could not be on company property. This I have a problem with. If I want to give someone a bottle of wine at work, that is 100% acceptable. There is a difference between having a bottle of alcohol and drinking. The HR director told about how these are industry standard policies, everyone does it, blah, blah. As I am always right, I told her I didn't agree with them and will not agree to follow those policies. This of course led to yet more discussions and her responses to me. She was telling me how not allowing weapons reduces workforce violence (no gun signs stop shootings you know). I remained right and said I won't agree to this. It will be fun the next couple of weeks.
