I find that funny. ANY employer can request ANYTHING, at any time. Request denied. It's really that simple.CroManGun wrote:Said refusal could subject the employee to disciplinary action which could result in termination. Proceed at your own risk.
Or it could not. Anyone can get fired for any phony reason. You just won't get fired for having a gun locked in your car, in Ohio, on your employer's property, after this law takes effect.
But here's the thing....
Boss: We have report that you have something suspicious in your vehicle and we request to search it. Will you agree to a search?
Employee: Yes sir, you can.
Boss: Gee, we have a gun in here and we can't do anything about it.
Employee: Yay, Thank you SB 199 for helping me keep my job.
Employee: No sir, you cannot.
Boss: You're fired.
People here all the time complain about their rights. Now all of the sudden they are willing to give up their right to privacy to gain the right to safety? Which one is worth more? To me privacy trumps safety. Employers are smart...and HR are some of the smartest in the conniving department.
