Business groups battle gun law — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily

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.”
