All College telephones (desk and cellular) are intended to facilitate College business. Non-business use of telecommunication service is permitted as long as that use is minimal, does not impede College functions, and does not result in significant additional cost to the College. Accordingly, employees should not place or receive unnecessary or frequent personal calls during working hours. This includes the use of personal cell phones.
Employees’ use of College telephones is monitored, and supervisors must regularly review the telephone records concerning the employees who work under their direction. Supervisors may require employees to reimburse the College for personal calls. In addition, employees who violate the College’s telephone use policy may be subject to discipline, up to and including termination of employment.
