Wisconsin’s Concealed Carry Law Effective November 1, 2011

Please be advised that Wisconsin’s Concealed Carry Law goes into effect on November 1, 2011. In just a few days, your employees and visitors, provided they receive a license, will be able to carry concealed weapons into your businesses and in your company vehicles unless you properly elect otherwise according to the new laws. As employers, you should be prepared to update your employee handbooks, enact new policies, and post the proper signs to accurately reflect your company’s policies and to properly minimize the amount of risk you, your business, and your employees are exposed to. A detailed description of the new laws and how they affect employers is available on our website at this link.
