There are many variables, including the type of job or jobs involved, and what restrictions are on the persons 'on call', so I believe that you really need to speak with an attorney that you can provide the specifics to and the attorney can check against the existing regulations for Wage and Hour.

You can find an employment lawyer near you or call my office and ask for Stuart Torch. Our number is 216.382.2500.
