An Unusual Condition of Employment - You Must Be Armed


A basic tenet of American employment law is that employment is at will, meaning that the employer can set the conditions of employment as long as it is not otherwise illegal.

A Georgia businessman who provides aviation insurance has a new one: all employees must carry weapons.  Local station WSB-TV in Atlanta has an interview: Business owner requiring all employees to be armed.

And the station's non-scientific twitter poll follow up: 60% think it is a good idea.

Wow.


Comments:
Interesting take. Laws can not be written and implemented in void.
