Legal Alert: Court Rules on Florida's "Guns at Work" Law


In a decision highly anticipated by Florida employers, a federal court has refused to enjoin portions of the Florida ?Guns at Work? law that apply to employer actions toward employees and applicants, but ruled that the law is only applicable to workers with a valid Florida concealed carry permit. See Florida Retail Federation v. Attorney General (July 28, 2008). However, the court did issue a preliminary injunction prohibiting enforcement of the law as it applies to a business and its customers.
