OSS MOU Section 11: On-Call Pay

When warranted and in the interest of County operations, the department head may assign employees to “on‑call” status. Effective the pay period in which the Board of Supervisors approves this successor MOU, employees shall be paid an hourly rate of four dollars and forty four cents ($4.40) for time in which they are required to be in an on‑call status. Employees receiving call-back pay shall not be entitled to on‑call pay simultaneously.

Employees in an on-call status required to report back to work during off-duty hours shall be compensated for a minimum of 2 hours. Employees not in an on-call status required to report back to work during off-duty hours shall be compensated for a minimum of 3 hours. Hours worked contiguous with the employee’s regular shift shall not be subject to call back pay.
