    Its a private business, if your employer allows it you are good to go as long as you are legal to carry one anywhere else that allows them.

    Wrong, private property is private property. And they can do as they please. If they don't want you to have a weapon on their property you can't have one. Also if they had a policy you can be fired for it. I know from experience on this. Don't spread false information to people. I would contact your hr department first.

    look GA is an at will employment state you can fired for wearing a red shirt on tuesday before 9am....that still doesnt change the fact you do not need a license nor do you need permission to carry at work. yeah you can be fired for carrying but signs and whatnot are irrelevant in GA. you could just carry and never tell a soul its legal and GA case law back the fact up but if ever found out you could be terminated
