Ask HR: Cell Phone Policy Help!

Dear HR,askHR

My employees seem to be on their cell phones all the time. Am I allowed to implement a policy stating that every employee must leave their cell phone in a cubby during working hours?  Breaks and lunch would not be included.


HR Answer:

Yes you may implement a cell phone policy and focus should be on ‘enforcing the policy’. If you would like assistance adding new policy to your handbook, please feel free to contact us.
