If employees cannot bring personal bags into their workplace should the workplace provide menstrual products?

???

A violent situation with a knife has caused our company to not allow personal items or bags into the building.

The workplace doesn't allow you to bring anything personal to the workplace? Have I got that right?

Not since a recent violent instance when someone brought a knife and threatened to slit a supervisors throat.

That seems reasonable. They also need to provide a stock epipen in case of emergency, and OTC meds.

Yeah, I'm sure somewhere that's a violation of rights.

I edited post.

An employee pulled out a knife and threatened to slice a supervisors throat.

Since that we aren't allowed bags.

That is what I thought.

If I bring a bag they can search it. I don't care.

I guess so. In addition to over-the-counter meds water bottles and I feel that if y'all were allowed to bring lunch in the past they should have to provide lunch every day. Because it's not fair to make people all the sudden have to buy their lunch when they were allowed to bring it in the past. It's also kind of stupid because you could still bring a knife or gun under your clothes so it's really not preventing anyone from bringing an iPhone period just make everybody go through a metal detector

We have medical supplies.


And I agree. What about insulin?
