For goodness sake keep a log.
"On call" jobs often violate state and federal rules
for exempt and non-exmpt status.   Mileage for the second
trip to the office should be compensated in some cases.

The reason for a log is multi-fold the most important
one is at review time but also in the case of a "restructuring" ;-).

In some cases the key is the nature of the leash.   If they restrict
your travel or lifestyle there may be a problem.   You cannot
travel down the road three hours to watch your kid play sports.
Or if they restrict you from having a beer or make it impossible
to go ice fishing....

If you fix it over the phone or Internet but do not get 'paid'.

Most of the issues have surfaced with nurses and other health care
folk but if you are IT at a hospital and your on-call comp plan
is widely different from other professionals -- pay attention.
