    OnCall w/phones California

    My employer went on vacation and asked me to take the phones that come through during the weekend..


    The phone was forwarded to my cellphone for pick up if a call came through, none came through until Monday morning...

    Do I get paid for the on-call time?

    Or just when the actually calls came through?

    Agree; just for having a cell phone available to take calls is not paid time. However;
    when you take/get calls (do work), you have to be paid for that time if you are a non-exempt employee.

    You do not have to be paid simply for being on call. You only have to be paid for time actually worked. And if you are exempt (you do not specify), you do not need to receive any extra compensation at all.
