When warranted and in the interest of the County, department heads may assign employees to “on-call” status. On-call duty shall be defined as follows:
On-call duty is any time other than the time when the employee is actually on duty during which an employee is not required to be on County premises or other designated work site, but required to stand ready to immediately report for duty when called on to do so.
Employees shall be paid an hourly rate of three dollars and ninety-five cents ($3.95) for time in which they are required to be in an on‑call status. Employees required to report back to work during off-duty hours when in an on-call status shall not receive on-call pay while receiving overtime pay.
