However, I work for a company based in another state and the employee handbook says i cannot have a firearm in my car on company property. Funny thing is they dont own any property where my car parks, but others in the company but working in different states have been let go for having a gun in the car.
My question is, how do I approach the company about educating them on KY state law?
My understanding is as follows:
I am not sure how this KRS applies to an out of state employer, but for IN state:
You don't need to educate them on state law. As long as your car (not a company car) is on their property, the law gives you the right to store a firearm in your glove box, if you are a CCDW holder, period. Your employer has a duty to recognize this right. If they do not, and they fire you, you can sue them for violation of your rights. $$$$$$$
Again, this right does not extend to a company car. I believe, as long as you are in KY, the KRS you cited above applies to you, but I don't know about your out of state employer. If they are doing business in the Commonwealth of KY, the law may still apply to them.
Due to the out of state nature of your situation, you should really consult a lawyer on this matter. I know I would!
