Nev. Admin. Code § 284.218 - Compensation for standby status

1. A nonexempt employee in the classified service of the State is on standby status when he or she is:
(a) Directed to remain available for notification to work during specified hours;
(b) Prepared to work if the need arises;
(c) Able to report to work within a reasonable time;
(d) Directed by his or her supervisor to carry a paging device, provide a telephone number where he or she may be notified or provide any other acceptable means for notification; and
(e) Allowed to use the time during which he or she is waiting for notification to work for his or her personal pursuits.
2. When a nonexempt employee in the classified service of the State who is on standby status begins the performance of his or her regular duties after receiving notice to work, he or she ceases to be on standby status and qualifies for straight time or overtime pay, whichever is applicable, for the actual time worked. Upon completion of the work, he or she returns to standby status for the remainder of the time he or she has been directed to be available to work.
3. A nonexempt employee in the classified service of the State is entitled to receive additional pay, or equivalent compensatory time off, at the rate of 5 percent of his or her normal rate of pay for every hour he or she is on standby status.
4. Cash payment is the preferred method of compensation pursuant to this section, but compensatory time off, not to exceed the maximum allowed pursuant to subsection 3 of NAC 284.250, must be granted in lieu of cash payment if the employee requests compensatory time and the agency approves the request.
5. Any class designated by statute as a 24-hour class does not automatically qualify for this additional pay.
