  • on call in Idaho Idaho

    Our employer has always asked us to take home an after hours cell phone. This phone is shared by 2 employees and if a call comes in we are required to help the person calling whether that means coming in to the worksite or simply answering over the phone. I have never had a problem with this but just recently our employer has decided that we cannot let any after hours call go to voicemail. We have to be available to answer immediately at all times. Is this legal without pay?
