Business continuity, Business Management

My response to both questions was yes. I an of the view that if the purchase of a cell phone is required to ensure business continuity, every one should key into the decision. 

What do you think about the results of the poll that you and your classmates took? 
Most respondents answered No. I think that their responses may have been driven by the role they play as employee advocates. 

Based on the poll and what you have read in this discussion, would your response to the poll change? 
I responded yes to both questions and would not change my responses. In fact, using the layers framework, it is clear that employers are allowed to establish policies that will further their interests. However, as HR professionals, we need to ensure that in doing so, employers do not take actions that will reduce employee productivity and that practices are fair, equitable and consistent. 

Though the practice appears to be unfair to most respondents, it is not ilegal.

What Questions Would You Ask? 
To ensure fairness and consistency in the implementation of this practice, i will ask the following questions:

  • will this be applicable to all employees or only a particular category?
  • Is there a policy in place documenting this practice and if not will one be developed?
  • If staff are to be available to the business 24/7, will their compensation packages be adjusted to reflect this?
  • what sanctions (if any) would apply to employees who fail to comply?
