I work for dominos in va they have a no gun policy. Can they fire me for legally carrying a concealed weapon in my car ? I have a CCW and my car is my personal property. How can they tell me I can't protect myself ?
1 Answer from Attorneys
Yes, unless you're working pursuant to an enforceable contract
which protects you from summary discharge for this particular activity
(unlikely) which presumably is within the scope of your employment
if you're using your vehicle to deliver Domino pizzas.
However, even if you were not using your vehicle in the above-described
manner, the company could likely still fire you without penalty since Virginia is a so-called employment at will jurisdiction where an employee can be fired for nearly any reason that doesn't violate federal /state anti-discrimination laws or even for no reason at all.
