Length of Shift/Call

Once the minimum call is surpassed, billing will be based on hours worked.

All employees are entitled to a 1-hour meal break after 5 hours worked. There will be no stage access while our technical staff are on a meal break.

We would like to encourage all our clients to plan meal breaks into their schedules and only move to the following options if necessary. Should you not wish to take a full hour meal break there are the following options.

  1. You can shorten the meal break to 30 mins (must still happen on or before 5 hours worked)
    • by ordering and providing staff with a meal of their choice. Everyone touches base at the beginning of the day to choose something from Skip or Door Dash.
    • by paying a $50 per staff member meal penalty
  2. adding an additional technician for a 3-hour minimum to rotate 1 hr breaks with the 3 technicians and continue working through.

After 8 hours worked staff will be billed one and one-half (1½) times the contracted rate.

Staff working on statutory holidays will be billed at two times the contracted rate.

A minimum of 11 hours of overnight rest is required from one day to the next. Infringing on this overnight rest period will result in a charge of $50 per staff member affected.
