Ugh, I'm kinda pissed right now. My gf (fiancee really), just got done telling me her story from work. She's finishing up school and working at JC Penny's. She normally carries her Kahr PM9 to work, stores it in a secured locker, then carries it after work. She used to keep it concealed on her person during her shifts, but another employee sat on her in the break room and discovered the firearm, complained and the manager asked her to keep it locked up during her shifts. A few weeks ago, they had a guy hovering around the exit doors after close when employees were starting to leave. Apparantly a pretty shady looking character. The Loss Prevention at Penny's isn't armed. They knew from talking to my GF that she's a MA instructor and carries a firearm sometimes. They asked her to walk with them to escort employees out to their vehicles while this guy was outside to ensure the female LP's (all of them are female btw) and the other employees weren't attacked, at least until the local PD showed up. The other night, during the LP's check of employee purses, bags etc, the LP pulled my gf's gun out of her purse, and freaked out another employee, who complained about it. Today, the store manager called her into his office and told her she was no longer allowed to carry her firearm to work (even keeping it in her locker during her shift, or in her vehicle), according to the NEW company policy. He told her she needed to sign a form stating that she agreed to not carry at work or she would be fired, if she didn't sign the form, she wouldn't be allowed to return to work until she did so. To her knowledge, noone else was forced to sign this form. I don't know if there's anything that can be done about it. She doesn't want to stop carrying, especially since a number of female employees have been attacked while leaving the mall after close. Is there any course of action she can take other than looking for another job? (Which she has already started btw). I remember something about a Taco Bell being sued because they didn't allow customers and employees to carry, but I can't remember enough specifics.
