Effective September 1, 2011, Texas employers will no longer be able to prohibit employees from storing legal firearms in their locked vehicles while at work. Background Governor Perry of Texas has signed Bill 321, known as the Hegar Gun Bill, into law.
The bill prevents employers from implementing policies that prohibit employees from storing legal firearms in their locked vehicles while at work. Employers may continue to enforce policies that forbid employees from carrying firearms in company-owned vehicles or in their offices. The legislation also protects employers from lawsuits arising out of the use of firearms stored in employees' vehicles.
