Standby and Call Out Allowances Benchmark | EEF

Standby and Call Out Allowances Benchmark

The majority of manufacturers have some of their employees that are on standby or are called out, at particular times outside of their normal working hours.  The main reason for having these arrangements is to ensure that employees are available for repair or breakdown of machinery and equipment.


Our new benchmark on standby & call-out looks at the types of employees that are asked to be on standby/called out, the reasons why and the range of allowances provided.
