Hi! A few minutes please as I review your question so I can provide you with legal information-thanks!

Labor code 226.7 does not specifically address this but it does state a worker cannot be forced to be on call so presumably they cannot require an employee to remain on premises so they are on call.   Please see https://www.dir.ca.gov/iwc/EXCERPTS.htm

Hello;
Just wanted to check in with you again.
I try and provide as much information as possible to the customers of the site, so I wanted to get you some information on how to hire an attorney should you determine that is necessary

Here is an article from the American Bar Association on how to hire an attorney, as well as a link to their referral program;
https://www.americanbar.org/groups/legal_services/flh-home/flh-hire-a-lawyer/
Many people find that useful.

This is very important as it explains how billing works
https://www.americanbar.org/groups/legal_services/milvets/aba_home_front/information_center/working_with_lawyer/fees_and_expenses/

I definitely hope all this information, as well as the information provided earlier, is helpful.

Should you need further assistance, be sure and reach out to us here at Just Answer and we will do our best to get you that information!
As always, thank you for allowing me to assist you. I hope this site has been helpful as I believe in providing affordable legal information so that one can decide if they need to pursue the issue with a personal attorney. Thank you and take care.
