In some companies, employers schedule “call-in” shifts. This means, the employee calls in a certain amount of time before a shift to see whether or not he or she needs to come to work that day.
Call-ins are nearly always violations of the law. In many cases, employees who are scheduled for a call-in shift but do not actually get to work that day are entitled at least 2.5 hours of pay. If this is a common practice in your company, you may be entitled to significant back pay.
