  • On-Call (MN)

    A friend of mine works for a buisness and usually there is rotation between employees to take the on-call times during the weekend. But alot of people have quit and he is now going on his 4th week in a row being on call, and he usually ends up going into work 7 days a week(5days +2 oncall days).

    He is not recieving overtime buthe is working the overtime because he gets an additional 9hrs a day Sat and Sun.

    They also put restricions on him, saying he cant be so far from the workplace and cannot consume alcohol.

    Should he be getting any compensation for all this? Seems a little unfair.

    I doubt such restrictions would be enough to make the stand-by time compensable. He can still go anywhere close enough to the job to be there within the time frame required by the employer. Neither is not drinking alcohol a requirement that would make the time compensable. However, he is welcome to contact the state Dept. of Labor to confirm.
