Here's what we do:
RN weekend call-ins = the following schedule and extra weekend day is schedule = payback
Ancillary do not have to make up weekends
All call ins need to be received by the Administrative Supervisor at least two hours before the start of the shift, anything short of two hours, it is up to the discretion of the manager to pay or not to pay.
For those staff members that come in, knowing they are sick, and leave within the first hour, again up to the discretion of the manager to pay or not to pay. You get comments like........If I called in, I'd be in violation of the attendance control policy. I explain to them that its not fair to the patients or their peers because had you called in, perhaps we could have covered the call in, but by showing up and wanting to go home you begrudge the institution from trying to cover you, so you are still in violation of the attendance control policy and now you don't get paid because you didn't call in two hours before the start of your shift. I've done this once of twice and have been a manager for years so my staff adheres to the policy and their peers hold them to it as well!
