Kansas Violence in the Workplace: What you need to know

Under Kansas state law, public and private employers may restrict the ability of employees licensed to carry concealed weapons while they are performing their jobs (KS Admin. Reg. Sec. 12-16-124). Business owners may not restrict licensed employees from storing firearms in their private means of conveyance, even if vehicles are parked on company property. Business owners who restrict the carrying of concealed weapons on their property must properly post their buildings with signs. Parking lots may not be posted. Properties on which guns are prohibited under KS Admin Reg. Sec. 75-7c-10, including schools, churches, athletic event venues, and bars, must now be posted. Properties on which carrying concealed firearms is restricted under federal law are not required to be posted.
