Here's how I look at it:

Your employer has every right to set the rules for employment. If they don't want you armed, that's their right and it's your right to accept it or to quit.

If your employer doesn't have any signage and it's not against the rules in the employee handbook it would still be a good idea to ask your employer because they can still fire you for it in the state of Ohio.

You may not care about losing your current job, however you'll have to explain to future potential employers why you were terminated.

In the short term. In the long term, people work where they can because they've made choices to not allow themselves to work where they choose.

I guess I'm one of the odd ones here. I've broken all of tweed's rules (although it is very sound advice for the corporate world).
I have a desk and also do a lot of field work that takes me into bad areas of town. Every morning I get to the office and toss my gun, keys, and phone on my desk before getting the coffee going. No one cares. The owner of my current company does the same.
The job I had prior to this one did not allow guns in the office or when on company time, but ok to leave in the car. I was tasked with going to da hoods of Detroit to bid on some houses. Told my supervisor I'm carrying my gun or count me out. He said he would too.... all good. It was against company policy, but he didn't care and no one else was willing to go up there.

The employer I had before that, I approached the owner about carrying. At the time, I was going to some really bad areas (was carrying anyway) and he told me his lawyer advised against it even though I sent him the ORC about not getting sued for allowing it. I quit shortly there after.

I look at it this way. If I'm dead, I certainly cannot provide my family with a roof and food.

I'm not willing to sacrifice my safety over some corporate policy.

If they can't agree to my terms when it comes to this, I'll go somewhere else.

Everyone's situation is different, everyone's priorities are different and everyone's decision is different to match their own unique circumstances. I view Tweed's rules as valuable guidance for survival in the corporate world.

I never heard of anyone becoming unemployed for following Tweed's rules. I can't say the reverse is true.

Agreed. Another one of Tweed's words of wisdom is "life is replete with choices".....

I've taken his advice.

I teach concealed carry classes in our conference room at work. No worries here.
