Desk Phone Policy

Desk Phone Policy


It is the policy of Jefferson Community College that college telephones and fax machines are to be used for business purposes only. Employees are expected to exercise reasonable discretion in using college desk phones and fax machines for personal use. Excessive incoming or outgoing personal calls during the workday can interfere with employee productivity and be distracting to others. Employees should make personal calls during non-work times and ensure that friends and family members are aware of the College's policy.


  1. On occasion, it is understood that personal calls will be made or received during work hours. These should be kept to a minimum in terms of number of calls as well as duration of calls. Flexibility will be provided in circumstances demanding immediate attention so long as the employee makes supervisory staff aware as soon as possible.
  2. Usage of college telephones and fax machines is not private or secure. The College has the right to monitor bills to determine if misuse or abuse exists.
  3. College desk telephones and fax machines may not be used to defame, harass, intimidate or threaten any other person.
  4. The Board of Trustees hereby authorizes the President, or his/her designee, to develop and establish appropriate standards and procedures to implement and enforce this policy.
