  • Pay for phone calls California

    I apologize for not finding this answer in the forum. I did a search and didn't find the answer but I am sure this question must have been asked before.

    We have an employee who is a production lead. He directs other people's work and gives annual reviews but also works alongside his team in production. He is non-exempt, hourly. When he was out on leave he received work related phone calls lasting anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes related to his Lead duties.

    Do we compensate him? If so, how?

    Thanks for your time

    Pay him (at least) for time actually worked. You are claiming the employee is non-exempt. Lets say that you are correct. Then you s hould be paying the emploeye for all time worked, including time not spent working outside of the office/shop. If you want to pay for more then that, fine, but that is not a legal requirement.
