    The work is paid by the piece (.225 per document), not the hour...How would that affect it?

    There is no "cutoff". However, this time is "engaged to be waiting" and it is compensable.

    If you are not getting paid for this time, you can file a claim for unpaid wages and unpaid overtime (if the waiting time + the work time exceeds 40 hours in a workweek) with the state Dept. of Labor.

    Work from home - Oregon

    I work from home, not contract work, for one company. I have a schedule for days I must be available to work. My question is "how long must I wait to find out IF I am working each day?"
    They currently say if we have not been contacted by 2pm, that we can assume we have the day off. But that's 7 hours of waiting (I get up at 7am, ready to work by 7:15) when I can't do anything, because I MIGHT be working that day. Then, if the work does come in, I am expected to stay up late to finish it by the next morning. So, I am stuck at home all day and night. Is this legal, or is there some cut-off for when they can stop making us wait?
