No. There is a doctrine in law that the "specific controls the general." TPC §30.06 is a trespass statute that is based upon the ability of a property owner to bar entry to certain persons. SB321 strips employers of this authority over employees.

Chas.
But the sign would still apply to customers, visitors and other people who aren't employees. Right?
Correct.

Chas.
So how would it affect (if at all) those folks if they were carrying (in their vehicle) under MPA?
Non-CHL Employees with handguns in their cars pursuant to the MPA are protected by SB321, so long as they don't work for a chemical manufacturing plant or a refinery.

SB321: Employer parking lots

The House just voted to concur with the House/Senate Conference Report on SB321, the employer parking lots Bill. Now the Senate can do so as well.
