To clarify: Your employee is posting on social media at work?

Yes! We have a no cell phone policy as well and they can only use them when they aren't with the children

Cell phones (unless it's the business's) shouldn't even be allowed.

My husband has to keep his in either his car or his locker. It can not be on his person at any time while he is on the clock.

We are not allowed to solicit sales of anything while we are on the clock. Itís okay if we leave a catalog in the break room for people to look through but we are not supposed to put fliers in kids boxes for parents to take home or to post anything on the center website. As for cell phones we can have them with us but we are not to use them unless it is an emergency. When supervising children we are not supposed to be texting or browsing social media. The only exception is during nap time.
At my previous job we had to keep our cell phones in our locker. If you were caught with it on your person the manager would take it away and lock it in her office until you left for the day. The second time you were caught you were fired on the spot.

If you have a no cell phone policy while on the clock she shouldn't be using the phone period.
What she's doing/selling or saying makes no difference.

If it's problematic, let your director know of the issue.

I agree. If there is a policy, she needs to follow it like everyone else.

I use an instant parent communication app, so I am on mine all day. I update at least every 20 minutes throughout the day and share photos several times per day so parents can hardly expect me to not be on the phone.
