on call shifts
I work at a national clothing franchise and they require their associates to be on call on average of 2 shifts a week. Which means that you have to call one hour before your scheduled time to see if you are needed. Most of the time they tell one no, you arent needed. I am concerned because I currently work two jobs and I am not compensated for the on call shifts if ''i am not needed''. Should one be compensated if its mandatory to have ''on call shifts'' every week and one just has to sit around waiting all day to ''maybe'' have work?
