    I wish to submit that the employer can refuse personal cell phones at work place but however he cannot take your cell phones permanently. Employer cannot take any legal possession of an employee permanently. Hence, you can demand back your cell phone from your employer at the time of leaving the work place.

        What if they make a new policy saying you cant posess a cell phone even if you are not using it on there time nevertheless saying you cant use a cell phone on ur lunch .. My employer said we had to leave our phones in our cars at the shop ...The problem with that is we leave the shop to the job site is that legal?

          It might not be illegal, but it certainly isn't reasonable. What if, for instance, an employee has a child who is sick, or a child who requires constant care, and that parent needs to be notified?

          We live in a day and age of cell phones, and unfortunately, they are not going to go away anytime soon, so we all must learn to get used to it. It's not unreasonable to ask that personal cell phones be turned off, or se to silent, but it is unreasonable and a bit over the top to actually require them to be left at home, in a car, etc.

          The employer is being unreasonable and appears to have taken a bit of power and control overboard.
