I seem to remember reading that the governor may sign something prohibiting employers from preventing you from doing this anywhere on there property. I have a C.C.W. and carry my sidearm 24/7.
Welcome to OCDO tsa.
Unfortunately, in Michigan,youremployer can prohibit weapons (firearms) on their property-very much the same as students on college or university property-even though you have a valid CPL and the firearm is secured in your personal vehicle. If you have a firearm (handgun) secured in your vehicle you have not violated any firearm laws. However, you may very well be fired due to violating company policy.
I don't recall the details, but recently, Florida passed a law that protected employees from being reprimanded/fired by their employer due to having a firearm secured in their vehicle.
ETA: When you mentioned 'governmental', I assumed at a state level. Of course, no carry (possession)on federal property.
