Caret symbol in command line parameters

I find that when passing strings to a program via command line parameters that the '^' symbol will be ignored if it is the first character in the string. For example

work ^ABC

will be passed as ABC. However

work A^BC

will correctly be passed as A^BC. Why? Does '^' have some special meaning on the command line?
