  • on call in pa

    I live in Pa...my employer is requiring me to be on call for a period of 4-8 hours, during which time I must be completely accessible, I do not have a cell phone (and they are not providing me w/ a beeper or cell) so this would require me to stay at home for that period of time and if I am called I MUST come in...so can they do this w/out paying me and what if I have to leave my home (i.e. to pick my kids up from school/activities or to take them to dr.s appts, etc.)

    If you a non-exempt employee and your on-call status substantially limits your free time, then you must be paid.

      on call in pa...one more thing

      I forgot to add that this is not even a company policy...my manager enacted this just to save unneeded scheduled hours. Can she even force me to comply?

        Yes, she can force you. It's just that you must be paid.
