I don't mind giving my personal information to the HR staff, but they want to publish my residential and cell phone number in the office directory.
I don't have a residential phone, and I am not interested in all my colleagues getting my cell phone number. How can I avoid giving out this information without creating problems for myself at work? How can I approach this with HR?
They say it's in case of emergency (if they need me to come into the office outside of regular hours), but the job I have has no valid "emergency" reason to be called (job-wise), ever.
Edit: We are talking about my private cell phone (not on contract), nothing was provided by the company since I do not need a cell phone for my job.
There are 2 other programmers who are "always" on-call. I'm not on that list (we democratically choose to be on that on-call list or not, two out of 15 chose to be and we don't need more).
