No. If the employee is on call to the extent that she cannot enjoy her life, that could be viewed as on-the-clock work entitling her to payment. She could make an issue of this. However, making an issue of it could get her disciplined or terminated.
She could subtly mention it and inquire as to what is she in fact required to do while "on-call" and how likely would she be actually called in to work. First get a feel of this on-call arrangement to gauge the actual restraint on outside of work activities that the on-call requirement will cause on her life and then broach the discussion of being required to perform work off-the-clock if the restrain on normal life activities interferes with her normal life outside of work that she is not being paid for.
