Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.

Yes, an employee can be required to be on call for 24 or 48 hours.

If the employee is paid on an hourly basis, then the employee is entitled to compensation if the employee is required to be on the employer's premises while on-call or nearby (normally within around 10 miles).

If the employee is not required to be close by, and only required to have a cell phone, then, unfortunately, the employee is not due any compensation for being on-call.
