What is the policy for receiving standby/on call pay?
Employees in positions requiring them regularly to remain at, or within the confines of, a duty station during longer than ordinary periods of duty, a substantial part of which consists of remaining in a standby status rather than performing work, receive premium pay ranging from 5 to 25 percent per year of basic pay that doesn’t exceed the GS-10, step 1 cap, including any locality pay.
