Telephone Use
Our phones are principally for work-related communications. Unless there is an emergency, employees are required to limit long distance telephone calls to business purposes only. Employees should limit personal use of the telephone to brief communications during rest periods where possible. Casual conversation with friends and relatives during working hours is discouraged. Telephone use is subject to the Voicemail/Email/Internet Usage Policy.
Personal Cell Phone/Mobile Device Use
While SPM permits employees to bring personal cell phones and other mobile devices (i.e. smart phones, tablets, laptops, etc.) into the workplace, employees must not permit the use of such devices to interfere with their job duties or impact workplace safety and health.
Use of personal cell phones and mobile devices at work can be distracting and disruptive and cause a loss of employee productivity. As a result, employees should primarily use such personal devices during nonworking time, such as breaks and meal periods. During this time, employees should use their device in a manner that is courteous to those around them. Outside of nonworking time, use of such devices should be kept at a minimum and limited use only. Employees with devices that have a camera and/or audio/video recording capability are restricted from using those functions on Company property unless authorized in advance by management or used in a manner consistent with the rights of employees to engage in concerted activity under section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA).
Employees are expected to comply with Company policies regarding the protection of the employer's confidential and proprietary information when using personal devices.
While operating a vehicle on company time, the Company requires that the driver's personal cell phone/mobile device be turned off. An employee that needs to make or receive a phone call should pull off the road to a safe location unless he or she has the correct hands-free equipment for the device that is in compliance with applicable state laws.
Employees may connect their personal devices to the Company network or to Company equipment (computers, printers, etc.) if permitted by their supervisor with prior approval and permission. Employees may have the opportunity to use their personal devices for work purposes. Before using a personal device for work-related purposes, an employee must obtain written authorization from Human Resources. The use of personal devices is limited to certain employees and may be limited based on compatibility of technology.
Nothing in this policy is intended to prevent employees from engaging in protected concerted activity under the NLRA. Violation of this policy will subject an employee to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.
