On call shift
, sometimes referred to as on-call shifts
are processes used in business where employee work schedules are intentionally unpredictable. Employees who work on-call are expected to be available at any time of day or night, usually with short notice, to carry out their working duties.
Depending on the nature of the profession, on-call duties may vary from what is expected during normal working hours
to emergency cover only
An individual working on call usually has a regular waged or salaried term of employment, to which working on-call is an addendum (e.g. doctors, engineers, emergency services).
