Department/unit heads are responsible for determining the need for on-call duty and for assigning employees to on-call duty. Supervisors must maintain an on-call roster of all qualified employees who may be required to serve on on-call duty. An equitable rotation procedure must be followed in requiring employees to serve on on-call duty.
On-Call Period - Definition: An on-call period is a designated period determined by the department/unit head in consultation with the Department of Human Resources Management. Such periods may vary in beginning and ending times from department to department, and are subject to change by administrative decision as dictated by work load needs.
On-Call Pay: On-Call pay shall be provided to employees at a rate per assigned shift as determined by the department/unit head in consultation with the Department of Human Resources Management. Employees on on-call duty and who fail to respond to being called back to work from on-call status will not receive on-call pay for that period. Employees already scheduled to work will not receive on-call pay.
