I'm a partimer at a retail company and our store is based in a mall. My manager suddenly decided to confiscate our phones even if we just look at it for a second to just check if we have any important message or calls. She has decided to confiscate our phones and keep it locked in her locker until its time for us to go home. Is she allowed to do that?

If she has previous given warnings that hand phones are not allowed and the employees don't heed the warnings, I think she has no choice but to take that action. Most companies don't allow hand phones during working hours.
