On-Call Allowance

You are entitled to an on-call allowance when your job duties fairly regularly require you to be accessible and available on an on-call basis, as agreed upon in writing. It is up to the faculty or unit to decide whether or not you are eligible.

You are not allowed an on-call duty allowance if your job is classified under a job profile which is part of the Education and Research job family or if you are granted salary scale 11 or higher.

An on-call shift is at least four hours long. The on-call allowance amounts to 10% of the maximum salary of salary scale 3 per full hour.

In the event that urgent work needs to be carried out (to be determined by the faculty or unit concerned) an overtime allowance may be granted instead of the on-call duty allowance. The on-call duty form can be found here.
