  • On Call/Call Back/Standby pay California

    I work in the health care industry and i'm trying to do some research regarding on call, call back, and stand by time. Does CA law require additional compensation on top of regular hourly wage for on call, call back, and standby time for non-exempt employees?

    Thank you.

    It all depends on how restrictive the on-call/standby time is.

    There's no additional pay required if you respond to a call, but there are reporting time minimums (minimum number of hours).

      OP, I suggest you become (if you aren't already) a member of your local/regional industry association so you can share information. If you are doing exactly what the law requires (no more) and other companies are providing a better compensation package, you're going to be at a disadvantage in hiring and retention.
      I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
