The phone call offering you a new job is often a joyous moment. In this economic climate, jobs are still hard to come by and the opportunity to work and support your family is significant. Likely, you have already discussed details such as salary, benefits, and job expectations with your future employer. However, there is another important issue that you should discuss before accepting the job. Specifically, you should ask about the workplace cell phone driving policy.
Will your employer expect you to answer the phone while driving? Does your employer anticipate that you will always be readily available? Is there any formal company policy about using a cell phone and driving?
The answers that you are looking for are that your employer does not expect you to use a cell phone while driving and that a formal company policy exists on this issue.
Using a cell phone while driving, even for an important work related call, can be deadly. It is not worth the risk to you or to your employer.
If your employer insists that you use a cell phone while driving and you are hurt then please contact an experienced Reading personal injury attorney for more information about your rights and potential recovery.
