It’s been six months since Ohio made it illegal for employers to prohibit employees (or anyone else for that matter) from storing a firearm in their vehicles on the employer’s property. This law, however, lacks any specific statutory teeth (sort of). If Ohio legislators get their way, this omission will soon change.
Am. Sub. H.B. 49 proposes to add the following language:
A business entity, property owner, or public or private employer … may be found liable in a civil action for injunctive relief brought by any individual injured by the violation. The court may award injunctive relief it finds appropriate.
