CARRYING GUNS ON THE JOB

By: Veronica Rose, Principal Analyst

You want to know if an employer may prohibit an employee with a gun permit from carrying his handgun on the job.

Yes. By law, a person who holds a handgun permit does not have the right to carry handguns on any property where handguns are otherwise prohibited by law or by the person who owns or exercises control over the property (CGS 29-28(e)).
