Oklahoma Violence in the Workplace: What you need to know

The Oklahoma Firearms Act (OK Stat. Tit. 21 Sec. 1289.71) and the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act (OSDA) (OK Stat. Tit. 31 Sec. 1290.1 et seq.) prohibit employers and business owners from banning the storage of firearms or ammunition in locked vehicles on their property. Under the OSDA, however, business owners and employers are not liable in any civil action for occurrences that result from the storing of firearms in a locked vehicle on their property, except for claims under the state Workers' Compensation Act. Except for allowing weapons and ammunition in locked vehicles, no other provision in the OSDA limits, restricts, or prohibits employers from controlling the possession of weapons on property they own or control.
As a result, under state law, employers may not prohibit a person from bringing firearms or ammunition into parking lots as long as the person is not a convicted felon and the vehicle is locked. However, employers may prohibit weapons or ammunition from the remainder of the premises.
