Abstract:     
This Article examines the range of issues employers confront as a result of the federal government's reliance on private sector efforts as part of the war on terror. These include statutes protecting employees' positions while they serve on active duty, private activities by employees related to security concerns (e.g., the Arizona Minutemen, employees carrying concealed weapons), and employee involvement with charities and other organizations labeled as terror-connected. The Article also discusses the role of private security forces hired by employers and policy issues surrounding their cooperation with public security forces.
