    Default Can You Be Required to Use Your Personal Cell Phone and Texting Apps for Work

    My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Oregon

    So I've been getting a lot of issues with my boss at my work regarding my personal phone and business phone calls and meetings. He is threatening terminating my employment for not showing up for a meeting that I was informed of only 24 hours prior to the meeting (I'm an hourly employee and was never formally scheduled that day)

    He is also requiring me to use my phone for work related tasks (Group me and conference calls on my days off)
    I don't get any discounts from my employer for my cell phone and they haven't paid for my phone in any way. Are they legally allowed to make me use my phone without reimbursing me?

    Default Re: Personal Use of Cell Phone and Texting Apps

    Unfortunately, in 49 states including Oregon, yes they are.
