5.7  Telephone

A. Telephones and Fax Machines: College telephones and fax machines are provided to employees for the conduct of College business. Therefore, local personal calls and faxes should be limited in length and frequency. Long distance personal calls and faxes are prohibited.

B. Reporting: Each department receives a monthly statement listing all long distance telephone calls made from departmental extensions. Supervisors are responsible for reviewing this report and discussing questionable calls with employees. If the calls are deemed inappropriate by the supervisor, the employee must reimburse the College.

C. Cell Phones: Please reference the Cell Phone and Data Plan Policy. Cell phones that are purchased for institutional use and that are not assigned to an employee must be purchased through the IT department.
