My company has started a new cell phone rule that requires us to check in our cell phones in the office and are given back to us during breaks and at the end of our shifts. There is no policy in our employee handbook that requires us to give our phones up. The only electronic policy that is in the handbook is the use of company computers for personal use. There is however no policy regarding the use of cell phones or the confiscation of them. How should it be addressed if it's not in the handbook and was verbally addressed to us?
