I don't understand why in Florida they post employee laws when the employer has total rights of the employee.I work in the HVAC service field, I did not know the employer can make me be on call and make it mandatory. I get no set lunch breaks or have normal free time with my family on weekends when I am on call. I though fed law provides for that.
Hmmmm....was married to an HVAC guy for a long time. If you don't like being on call, then don't be an HVAC tech, or a doctor, or a Mom.
"On call" hours are impossible to put laws to. You could work 8 hours straight one day, and nothing the next day. And yet, you still get paid. And usually more than your normal salary.
Suck it up, big boy, or get out of the field.
If you are an employee, I guess they can do as they wish. If you are a contractor, you still may have to be on call if that was stated in the contract. Maybe you could find a county or state job? Maybe those jobs will have you on call less amount of time?
Wow Irohner that was a rude comment! The HVAC business really *is* hard and being on call is a huge demand.
But then again it's different than being on call as a doctor or nurse, for example. Talk about tough!

"I'm very punctual." That was my response when a woman asked me why I am a good worker during a phone interview. "Okay," she responded, "but what would your current supervisor have to say about you?" Jeez, I thought. There is nothing positive he could say, especially...

It has got to be an employer's market, a cousin of mine called and said that he got a job. The employer said that he was to work part time and was expected to be on call virtually at all times the store was open. Of course, no benefits outside the crappy compensation. What the hell is going on...

Should an employer judge you by your credit report?Please explain your logic.

Washington state is an "AT WILL" state and most employers are under the assumption that they don't have to have a reason to fire an employee. One employer actually told me that he could fire a person because he didn't like the patch on her shirt! Because I was not at all...
