The Florida Retail Federation and the state Chamber of Commerce have filed a joint lawsuit against the Florida Attorney General’s Office, challenging the constitutionality of the state’s recently enacted guns-at-work law.

The law allows Florida citizens to keep guns in their cars when parked on their employers’ premises.

Other advocacy groups such as the Restaurant & Lodging Association and the Council of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) support the suit.

SHRM has been fighting similar laws throughout the country, says Kathleen Coulombe, a state affairs specialist. “We don’t have a problem with employers who allow employees to keep guns in their cars,” she says. “It’s mandating that employers behave one way or the other that we find fault in.”
