I am seeking information from agencies who have had any experience with certain teams having to essentially be on-call outside of normal working hours. Our comms and media team are wanting to set up a roster, and are curious about what their entitlements are, and whether perhaps it falls under a restriction allowance. Basically, they want someone to monitor the mailbox outside of Monday – Friday after 6pm and action urgent media requests.
I would be grateful if your agency has had a similar circumstance, would you please contact me to discuss the circumstances, or, send me any relevant information that may assist us in putting something together.
