I had worked for the federal government in a building they owned. On a couple occasions all the doors leading to different floors where closed and locked. We were told to stay in our offices. I latter found out "some suspicious matterial had been discovered near the enterance and though the police couldn't be certain of what it was at the time had advised us to treat it as a potential bomb threat". This was all very strange.
- They did not inform us of the reason until after the doors were unlocked
- They forced us to stay on the floor we were in, in the building and not exit the building
Are the above 2 legal? Is this more of a question for The Work Place? I was on the third floor and the alleged threat was on the first but I thought if there's a bomb they would want everyone out of the building...
Must an employer tell you if there's a bomb?
