Due to the critical nature of the services provided by the District and the ability for employees to respond to an emergency situation, District critical employees (defined as: Field Operations Supervisor, Utility Worker, and Serviceperson I, II, or III) must have their place of residency within 10 miles of the District office as determined by MapQuest search.
Because of the critical nature of the work, employees may be asked to work overtime on weekends or holidays or additional hours during the regular workday and are expected to comply with such requests. In addition, employees are expected to participate in rotational, on-call duty as described in Policy #2010.
A schedule shall be maintained by Field Operations Supervisor whereby maintenance employees shall be assigned, on a rotational basis, to be “on-call” on weekends, holidays and other times not considered regular hours of work for District employees.When an employee is on-call, he/she shall be provided a cell phone, which will provide notification by phone call, email, alert, message, or text, in the event of an emergency incident/repair/maintenance work need. Said cell phone shall be kept on and in the on-call employee’s possession during the entire on-call period of time. Notification of an emergency incident/repair/maintenance work need may also be given verbally, in person or telephonically, by the General Manager or Field Operations Supervisor.
When an employee is on-call, he/she shall be free to utilize his/her time as desired, but must remain within the general Arrowbear Lake, Running Springs area, going no farther than 20 minutes travel time away from any District facility.
