A recent court ruling shows that your organization has the right to enforce its anti-violence policy anywhere on its property, not just within its walls. The case: Security cameras caught three off-duty AOL employees handling guns near their cars in a company parking lot. They planned to go target shooting at a gun range. All three were fired for violating company policy, which banned weapons on the property. The employees sued, claiming, but lost. (Hansen, et. al. v. America Online Inc., 20020288, UT, 2004)
