    Hi. If you are in interstate truck driving or a few other professions, then a company can require you to be on the job more than 40 hours a week.

    You need to be paid for the hours you actually work, and OT for any hours over 40 in a work week.

        On-Call Pay

        Your employer does not have to pay you for being on-call unless you are so restricted that you do not have any flexibility in the use of your time. For example, if you must stay at your employers' work waiting for work, then that would be too restrictive and you must be paid. However, if you have enough flexibility that you can go to the store, go to the movies, etc., then you do not need to be compensated on-call pay.

        Of course, you must be paid for the time you actually work, i.e., respond to the call.

          Yes, that is still legal. There is no required "in between shifts" time for your profession.

          It is unfortunate and a serious concern for all parties concerned and is being looked into, but so far, no laws have been created to give the needed break to those who have to go so long without sleep or a break.

          Best wishes,
