[Question] Weapons 'prohibited' at work but no sign posted, CCW allowed? (WI)

Hello,
I'm a new CCW (Wisconsin) carrier and was looking for some guidance. My work has a "no weapons policy", specifically:
All weapons are strictly prohibited from the workplace unless carried by an officer of the law or where laws protect individuals’ rights in this regard
however there are no 5x7 signs posted on the building about not allowing firearms. Would my CCW qualify as "laws protecting individuals' rights?"
My place of work is also in Wisconsin.

Apparently so, but I would consult with an attorney.

It is incumbent upon you, as an employee, to abide by your company's policies. How was the "No Weapons Policy" articulated to you, orally during in-processing, or in written policy handbook? In whatever manner, you are aware of the policy so the onus is on you to decide what is more important to you, your job or carrying in violation of of the policy.

Being new to carrying can make one feel empowered and the CCW license gives carte blanche to the licensee. Sorry, 'taint so and better to abide by your employer's rules!

Ain't that the truth.
G: You must have one of those CCW badges imprinted in your mind. Does "psychosis" ring a bell with you? Could it be that you had a trauma in your life associated with a badge, or an unobtainable wish to be a law enforcement officer?

Making fun of sheepdogs, CCW Badges and the over-use of the word "tactical" are all essential services that I am happy to provide to this forum. If for no other reason than that it is the "tactical" thing to do.
