Some services are blocked

Data outside of the EU and premium rate phone services and calls are blocked but can be unblocked if your job requires it. Your head of office or department must approve such extra services. To open blocked services, you must fill in the same form as you order a new mobile phone contract and send it to the University tele administrators

What happens if the included limits run out?

All calls, text messages and data usage that exceed the included limits are considered as private costs and will be deducted off your net salary each month. The salary deduction cannot exceed SEK 350 per month. Any costs that exceed SEK 350 must be paid as salary deduction according to a separate agreement between you and your employer.

In order to sign a contract, you therefore must sign a consent form so that the exceeding fees can be deducted from your salary. You give your consent on the same form as you order the mobile phone contract.

Work expenses will be reimbursed by the University

If you ever need to, in the line of duty, make more phone calls, send more texts or use more data than included in the contract, this usage will still be deducted from your salary. To get reimbursed for such costs, you need to register the salary deduction as an expense in the university administration system PASS. The amount will be reimbursed on your next pay cheque. Instructions on how to register an expense can be found in PASS, or you can ask your administrator for support.

If you notice that the contract you have is not enough for your work use, please contact your head of office or department to upgrade. Please note that this is not possible for customised contracts that do not have these services.
