  • salary calculation that includes on call Massachusetts

    I am a salaried healthcare worker who is on call roughly 3000 hours a year. When I was hired, my salary was calculated to include on call pay at $3.00/hr. Shortly there after, there was a hospital wide on call rate increase to $5.00/hr. My salary was not adjusted, and still has not been adjusted. Am I correct in thinking it should have been adjusted? Am I entitled to any retro?

    So long as you are being paid at least minimum wage for all hours worked (which may or may not include the time on-call), you don't have a case that you can take to the Department of Labor.

    However, your company may not have served you well and that is an issue you can take to your boss and/or HR Department.

    Sometimes folks get overlooked.

      Hi Scott,
      Thanks for the reply. I am a perfusionist, a licensed allied health worker who runs the heart lung machine. The minimun wage piece does not apply. From what you are saying, it looks like I was over looked, and should bring it to the attention of my boss and HR. Would you think I have an argument for retro pay?

        Yes, if they admit you should have had an increase and were simply overlooked, then you might be able to convince them to give you retro pay.
