Q. I saw in the paper last week that texting while driving is no longer allowed in North Carolina. Should my company have a policy regarding this?
A. That’s probably a good idea, at least for employees who drive regularly on company time. We addressed this new law in detail in Update your policies: North Carolina bans texting while driving.
Here is a sample policy:
While driving on company time or for a company-related purpose, no employee, other than in an emergency situation, shall operate a cell phone, BlackBerry or other such electronic device while the employee’s vehicle is in motion. This policy applies to the operation of both personal vehicles and company-owned vehicles. Violation of this policy may result in discipline up to and including termination.
