How does your hospital do "On-Call"?
We have to be available for our entire shift and are paid $4 an hour. If we get called in they have to pay us a minimum of 2hrs and if we get put on call without notice (you show up for your shift and they put you on call) they have to pay you a minimum of four hours. They use to give time and a half if you got called in but they took that away. We have to be on call for at least 2hrs for it to "count" and get our names written in the on call list (we take turns being on call when it is slow). Its sucks for me because I live 45 mins from my work so if I get called off I can not really go home because I would have to drive so far to come back in, at $4 hr I would be losing money.
A friend of mine gets twice as much for on call and they get"call back pay" at double time and are only on call for 10 hours, after that they do not get paid and can not be called in.
