Called In To Work

What is it?

Known as ‘call out pay’ or ‘reporting for duty pay’, it’s a minimum amount of pay workers are entitled to for reporting to work.

What is the standard?

Workers are to be paid a minimum of three hours at their hourly wage. If an employee does work, but works less than three hours, the employer is still required to pay the employee for a minimum of three hours of work at the employee’s hourly wage. Visit the ‘Learn more’ page to see a list of workers that fall under different rules for minimum call out pay.
