I know a guy whose company sent out an email titled "Workplace Safety" that said unless otherwise provided by law, <deleted> workplaces include the buildings in which we work as well as the parking areas of <deleted> workplaces. This means that you are prohibited from keeping a licensed firearm in your personal or rented vehicle while at a <deleted> workplace.

Admittedly it is a global company and the email also included that caviat about the law. To be safe he emailed the company's legal counsel referencing SB 321. Counsel agreed that LTC holder is exempt from that policy in this state and that email does not apply.

It pays know the law! You could get run over if you don't.
I work for a global company too and they have the similar language in our policies. But I have not nor would I email my company's legal counsel for two reasons. The first states "otherwise provided by law" - so the email explicitly states he can have it in his car at work because of SB 321.

The second and main reason is that his friend has let the company know that he probably has a weapon in his vehicle. Not saying his company would act unethically, but Texas being a right to work state, what if he was let go because someone who now knows is anti-gun but they don't state that as the reason hew was let go? He would never know. Even with my co-workers that I trust and who are pro-gun, they do not know that I have mine locked in my car safe. Concealed is concealed.
