IL Can I collect unemployment if I have been fired for using a cell phone?

by Scott
(IL)

One of my companies rules is that I can't have a camera phone. I have seen someone who has been fired for having a camera phone. Are they able to collect unemployment?



Hi Scott,

What's the reason for the rule not allowing phones with cameras .. do they actually make phones anymore without a camera:)

Do you have to sign a trade secret or confidentiality agreement?

I dont rember signing anything like that but i was told verbally per a supervisor about a the camera issue and I told him I would turn it off but that I wasnt going to go and buy a different phone...sorry. I in return was warned about it and told I could loose my job too if they saw it again.


Is the rule in the employer's handbook??? Are we talking about your personal cell phone?
