I have a question about being on-call. I work for a nursing home and share an on-call rotation with 4 other nurses. We are required to be on-call for an entire weekend, after working our 40 hours, or more (we are hourly employees-the 2 salaried management nurses are not required to take call). We use our personal phones as the contact numbers, using cell minutes if needed. We must stay sober, rested and ready to go to work at any time that a nurse either calls in for a shift or has to leave the facility for an emergency. We are also responsible to replace nursing assistants or nurses, if able, for open shifts during our “on-call” time, if needed. Needless to say, we must stay in town. We are not reimbursed for anything at this time, other than the time we actually work; meaning, the time we punch the time clock, in and out. It seems as though we should receive some other compensation. Please advise!
