Telephone Use Policy

Image Caption

Purpose:

To keep University telephone lines open for necessary business calls.

Policy:

Office desk phones and cell phones (when approved) are issued for University business purposes.

The University recognizes that there may occasionally be times when personal calls must be made or received during business hours.

Such calls must be held to a minimum, however, and must not interfere with the employee's work.

Employees are encouraged to make such calls during their breaks or at lunchtime.

When a long–distance call results in a charge, the call must be billed to the caller's home phone number or charges reimbursed to the University.

Personal Cell Phone Use

Use of personal cell phones must be held to a minimum and must not interfere with the employee's work.

Employees are encouraged to make personal calls during their breaks and lunchtime.
