But how can they fire you for having your phone with you? Isn't there also a law or something that says work places must have a secure (locked), clean place for personal belongings? Damn, fyl op
@46 I second that, my work place has a land line but it's for business calls. I don't see the problem with keeping a phone in my pocket if it doesn't interrupt my work (because I won't use it while working) and it's more convenient for emergency calls. And obviously it's gonna be muted and even Vibrate will be off.
I'm just wondering where the OP works where they don't feel comfortable leaving their belongings without fear of someone coming and taking it. I leave my purse with my wallet, keys, phone, everything in a locker at work without a lock and don't feel like one of my coworkers is going to come along and steal my things. That's really shitty to not be able to trust people you work with :/
71- I work at a grocery store with over 100 employees. I don't even know half of my coworkers and I sure as fuck don't trust them. I had my wallet stolen out of my bag once and despite there being security cameras somehow they couldn't figure out who did it. So I always keep my phone and wallet on me while working, even though we're not allowed to, because I'll be damned if I'm going to let someone steal my stuff again. Not all workplaces are a friendly, close knit group that you can trust.
Yes because you're obviously going to take pictures of customers or coworkers
Is... is that the first thing that comes to mind when talking about smartphones at work? Taking pictures of people? I thought it would be more in terms of it being "unprofessional" if your phone rang while you're with the customers. That seemed like the prime concern to me... is that not what we use them for anymore?
Wow... You guys must have some crazy stuff going on where you work... At my job the only reason we're not allowed to have our phones on us is because some people text their friends instead of helping customers. I've never heard of it being a security breach to take a picture or of anyone recording people's credit card numbers :/
That's bullshit... I don't understand why you would have to keep it in a locker in the first place if they knew you weren't using it.
