Can an employer take your cell phone from you?
I work in retail and my employer all of a sudden wants me to surrender my cell phone at the beginning of my shift. I am uncomfortable giving up my personal property and am wondering if there is anything legal about this. Thanks.

Why did your employer change his mind "all of a sudden"? I bet you've abused the privilege (not the "right") of using your cell phone during company hours. Until a dozen years ago, it wasn't a problem. All of us worked all day, without talking, and texting throughout the day. Now, every minute there's "an emergency situation and I just gotta talk..." No, it's not legal to have your phone confiscated. If it is important to you, you could talk to your employer about it, and ask what happened for his change of heart. As others have mentioned, you can keep your phone in your car or at home.

Do you need this phone to do your duties? Most likely not. I have a friend who works in a grocery store and they just implicated a new policy of no phones while working period.

The reason is that in most cases, the employees text constantly and do not help customers, do other jobs etc since they are too busy texting. Also they had cases where "friends" of employees stole or robbed the store due to the employee using the phone to "alert'" them when safe to come in and steal. They were able to prove this and the employees was fired.

If someone had to reach you in an emergency, they could call the retail store and call you. So you do not need this phone while working.

Either surrender the phone or leave in your car. If you value this job, then do as they say.

This is an easy one - just don't bring it into work. If you drive, leave it in your trunk. If you take public transportation, leave it home.

conditions of employment need to be spelled out in policy manuals. If it is in the manual, it is usually legitimate action. If clown hats are not part of the uniform, it is legitimate to request employees remove their clown hats before working. those who wear their clown hats to work can legitimately have them confiscated.
