As a Weekend On-Call CAREGiver, an employee maintains open availability for the duration of the designated On-Call period, in order to provide Caregiving Services to established HISC Clients on a fill-in basis. The Weekend On-Call Caregiver will remain available during the hours of 5:00pm Friday through 6:00am Monday. Employee must maintain a cellular phone-in working order, on record with the company, to facilitate communication with the On-Call Supervisor who is responsible for directing the activity and assignment of the Weekend On-Call Caregiver.
The On-Call Caregiver is expected to be able to arrive at any location within the Service Territory of HISC within one (1) hour of notice from supervisor.

For any shifts actually worked at the direction of the On-Call Supervisor the On-Call Caregiver will be paid at 1.5x their standard wage schedule, regardless of overtime status or ammount of hours previously worked.
