If you require an employee to stay at home or at work on an on-call or standby status, that time may qualify as hours worked, depending on how much you restrict his/her ability to actually have free time. Hours worked is defined as “the time during which an employee is subject to the control of an employer, and includes all the time the employee is suffered or permitted to work, whether required to do so or not.”
