"On-call" work means:

• that you work for an employer whenever that employer needs you, and

• you have no set schedule of hours.

How This May Affect Your Unemployment Insurance Claim

In certain instances, if you have been determined to be an "On-Call Worker," it means that you may not qualify for Unemployment Insurance benefits for any week that you work, or that work is available to you from your on-call employer.

This determination is based on information from you and the employer. The DUA service representative who makes this determination on your claim will explain the law as it applies to you.
