More details to this question:
So, I'm a nurse and at my work they have recently changed way they are doing on call and paying for it. Previously we were getting paid 2hours before the shift started till 2 hours after, now we are not it just when the shift starts to 2hours after. So example being shifts starts at 11, i use to get paid 9 to 1. Now its just 11-1. So my question is since I am no longer being paid 9-11 am i required to respond to calls from work during that time now that am i no longer being paid?

There is not a simple way to answer this questions without speaking in greater depth about this. You should speak with an Ohio employment attorney who handles wage and hour issues.

Employment Contracts
Before signing an employment contract with a new employer or your existing company, have an attorney read and review the document. Job contracts, confidentiality agreements, non-compete agreements and other binding documents can seriously restrict your actions if you are job hunting or are being contacted by recruiters. A lawyer can review the documents, highlight potential problems and negotiate key points with your employer.
