When warranted and in the interest of the County operation, the department head may assign employees to “on‑call” status. Effective the pay period following the Board of Supervisors’ adoption of a successor MOU in 2019, employees shall be paid an hourly rate of five dollars and forty cents ($5.40) for time in which they are required to be in an on-call status.
Employees required to respond to issues remotely while “on call” shall be paid the applicable rate of pay, in accordance with this MOU, for all time spent responding remotely, and for corresponding record-keeping that is required by a supervisor to be completed while off-duty.
Employees required to physically report back to work during off-duty hours shall be compensated for a minimum of three (3) hours of overtime. An employee receiving call-back pay shall not be entitled to on‑call pay simultaneously.
