call-backs as overtime
Does anyone have a "call-back" system in their facility? We are a small hospital and ambulance staff are sometimes needed to respond to calls when they are off duty, hence the wording "call-back". These employees are paid 1 1/2 times their rate of pay for 2hours for each call automatically, even if the call is only for 15 minutes (as it is an inconvenience for them on their time off). Would you consider these call-backs as worked time in the calculations of overtime for their regular time? Suggestions or facts are greatly appreciated.
