My question involves employment and labor law for the state of: Ohio
I am a salaried nurse required to take 30-40 hrs of on call time a month for my job with a medical group. I carry a pager and when called, I am expected to report within 20 minutes to an Emergency Room. The shifts are M-F 5PM-12AM and/or weekend 8AM-12AM. I can't go anywhere outside the 20 min loop and I have to get a babysitter for my children during this time period because I can't take the time to take them somewhere first before I go into the Emergency room. I am only compensated if I am called in. Is this legal? Should they be paying me an hourly call pay?
