Legislation to restrict employer property rights introduced

February 2, 2017

The Iowa House introduced HF 162 on Tuesday. The legislation, sponsored by Rep. Dean Fisher (R-Montour), would prevent employers from having a policy prohibiting employees from bringing guns into the parking lot of a workplace. In addition, the legislation includes contractors and volunteers who may be on an employer’s property for a specific job. ABI has seen this legislation pop up in other states and heard concerns from many members on the Jan. 20 conference call.           ABI position: ABI is opposed
