Tenn. bill establishes that employers allowing guns in businesses is not a workplace hazard

from Canadian Business

A measure that would provide liability protection for employers who choose to allow guns to be carried in their workplace is headed for a full House vote.

The proposal sponsored by Republican Rep. Vance Dennis of Savannah passed the House Consumer and Employee Affairs Committee 10-2 on Tuesday and is now waiting to be scheduled for a vote on the House floor.

The Senate passed the companion bill 30-1 earlier this week.

The proposal states that an employer allowing a person with a handgun permit to carry a weapon on the employer’s property “does not constitute an occupational safety and health hazard to the employees.”

Sponsors say they want to protect employers from complaints that may arise from employees.
