Some positions may require that the employee be readily available via cell phone throughout his or her work period or during non-work hours. University-owned cell phones are provided only by exception, as delineated in the last paragraph of this section. If an employee's position falls into any one or more of the following three categories, the university may subsidize the employee's personal cell phone service with a cell phone allowance, in an amount to be determined by the Planning Unit, but not to exceed $25 per month:
Cell phone allowances will be paid through Payroll, with all applicable taxes being withheld.
Where a health, safety, or regulatory justification can be established, exceptions may be granted to the general prohibition of university-owned cell phones. Generally, this will occur in the case of a cell phone that passes from person to person at shift change and does not leave the university premises or in the case of a faculty member leading a group of students abroad for study. All exceptions to policy must be processed in accordance with Policy and Procedure 01.003, "Exceptions to or Restrictions of University Policies."
