SC Employers Parking lot laws preventing employer searching for firearms.

Governor Haley, please consider the following legislation:

No person, including but not limited to Employer, who is the owner, lessee, or occupant of real property shall prohibit any person who is legally entitled to posses a firearm from possessing a firearm, part of a firearm, ammunition, or ammunition component in a vehicle on the property.

Employees are permitted to carry firearms to the place of work as long as firearms are maintained stored in unoccupied vehicle providing firearms are:

· Locked in the trunk of the employee vehicle

· Glove compartment of the employees locked vehicle

· Stored out of sight in the employees locked vehicle

Employers are not permitted to either:

· Ask employees about the presence of a firearm in a private vehicle

· Search a private vehicle for the presence of a firearm.

· Require disclosure of firearm by employee in an attempt to regulate.

Exceptions:

· Company owned vehicles, or fleet vehicles

· Legal control of the vehicle ( leased or rental)

Employers cannot search employee’s locked privately owned vehicles unless:

· The search is done by law enforcement in pursuant to a valid search warrant

· The situation would lead a reasonable person to believe that accessing the vehicle is necessary to prevent an immediate threat to human health, life or safety.
