Staff employed at the Sandals hotel chain in St Lucia appear to be up in arms over what they say is a new policy that prohibits them to carry or use their cell phones while they are on property.

The policy decision was apparently taken about a week ago when staff were asked to sign a contract stating that they are not allowed to be in possession of their mobile phones while at work.

Claims are that failure to sign the document would have resulted in immediate dismissal

The policy further suggests that phones must be handed in to security upon which a receipt with the particulars of the phone will be issued to them. It adds that the phones will be returned after the work shift when staff present the receipts that were handed to them upon check in.

Suggestions are that any failure of staff to present these receipts, would result in the seizure of their phones until they are able to produce the document.
 
RCI news has contacted the Communications manager at Sandals, Dominic Fedee who has confirmed that the policy has been taken.

He noted however that he was currently in the process of reviewing the document and has promised to make a full statement upon completion.
