Cornell University accommodates employees who need personal communication devices in the course of their job requirements in one of three ways: by issuing university-owned devices, by reimbursing business calls for infrequent users or by granting supplemental communication allowances. Management will generally deem an employee to have a regular business need for a device if any of the following conditions exist: (1) the employee is required to be fully accessible, at any time of day, to the public, university staff, faculty, students, or alumni telephonically or electronically; (2) the employee’s job requires frequent travel to a remote location off-campus or internationally; or (3) the employee has the need to receive or initiate communication in emergency situations.

Violation of a financial policy should be reported to your supervisor, your human resource representative, unit manager and/or the office responsible for the policy. Where these resources are inadequate, you may choose to make an anonymous report through the Cornell University Hotline.
