In many industries, “on-call” shifts are common. When a person is on-call, they are not necessarily required to be at work, but they are required to be available to work, such as by answering customer phone calls or coming to work if work comes up that needs to be addressed.
If you work on-call shifts or you are often expected to be available to work without notice, you may be entitled to be paid for the time you spend on-call. This is because you are limited in what you can do during that waiting time.
