The legalities of BYOD
Great points around BYOD. From an employer standpoint, while it does save costs when employees use their own personal devices, yes, it is important to clearly outline how reimbursement for voice and data costs will impact the employee. Many organizations probably still get away with "you can use your personal device, but we're not covering you for it", which not only raises questions when it comes to ownership of the data on the device, but can lead to resentment, especially when it comes to large data bills. It's also important to make sure that security policies when it comes to BYOD are clearly explained, as some organizatiosn might use remote wiping technologies if an employee leaves the company, which if not done properly means wiping the ENTIRE device, and if it's a personal phone, could cause some headaches for all parties involved.
