Implied Consent Alerting Initiating Policy

EMPLOYEES (National Law Review)
"First, employers can easily obtain the needed consent from employees for certain types of calls. Anytime an employer desire to send messages to employees that are informational and related to that employee's job responsibilities the employer only needs to show: i) that the employee supplied the phone number directly to the employer in connection with his or her employment; and ii) (preferably) that the employee acknowledged the employer's right to use the number for that purpose in some manner (i.e. as part of a policy or procedure or onboarding document.)

Truthfully, however, the rules around consent for non-marketing calls are sufficiently loose that an employer probably does not even need the employee's direct acknowledgment of the right to use the number in any particular way. The mere fact that the employee supplied the number directly to the employer is enough for most non-marketing purposes."
