Hello B&E pals, Bit of back story to this thread. I've been on call at my current company for just on two years (been there 3yr 3m). When I first started on call it was not a problem at all, very sparse phone calls and very sparse server issues. Fast forward to now and it's beginning to impact life in general, more things are going wrong and more out of hours work is required and more people calling for "emergencies". Due to a lack of numbers I am on call two out of every four weeks (two week stretches at a time). I do not get paid for being on call. We worked off a "time in lieu" scenario but it's never ever 1 to 1 ratio. When you want to take it you can't because someones away or there won't be any coverage for that time etc. Also there is an issue on my side, I felt guilty taking the time as we have a small team, by the time I wanted to take it (at a time that suited me!) or should take it the time has been long forgotten... Do you get time in lieu and record the time spent? Does it vary if it's 3am in the morning as apposed to 9pm at night? Do you get paid for just being on call? Do you get other bonuses? If you spend a long stretch working do you have the option to pass on call to someone else? What do you think "reasonable overtime" is? I'm going to speak to the relevant parties about this at work but before I do I wanted to get some feedback from some others in similar situations. How do you handle on call? Are you happy with your arrangement?
