Is Oncall Days Considered Work Days?

This answer was rated:

My husband works for a company in California and works a normal 40 hour week, plus every 3 weeks he is "oncall" for 24/7 for 7 days. He is getting paid OT but now the company wants the oncall people to take on MORE responsbility which virtually means he will be working 24/7 during that time. Is an oncall day considered a work day in the consecutive days law? During his oncall week and then the next normal week he ends up working 12 straight days without a day off. Thank you for your help.
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.

Yes, as long as your husband is being paid while he is 'on call' then the on call days would be considered work days in the consecutive days law and he is entitiled to receive overtime wages for working seven consecutive days without a day off.
