If salaried non-exempt employees are “on-call” outside of work hours, is this paid overtime?

In general, simply being on call does not create an overtime situation. However, if the employee is required to remain at a particular place to wait to be contacted for possible work (i.e., the employee is “engaged to wait”), this will normally result in the time waiting being treated as overtime.
