What is Temporary Call-In (TCI) status?
Temporary call-in (TCI) status refers to the employment contract an employee has with Eastern Health. Our TCI employees are causal staff who are relied upon to provide short-term coverage throughout the organization. The employer is obligated to recall TCI employees in order of seniority, and the TCI employee is obligated to accept the shift unless he/she can not do so for a justifiable cause (i.e. sick, on approved leave, weekend off, etc.).
10. How many hours c
ould a TCI employee work?
Hours worked by TCI employees vary ranging from zero and up to 75 hours bi-weekly.
Working hours are based on the needs of specific programs. As a TCI employee, your primary responsibility is to be available when called upon to provide adequate relief for short-term vacancies. TCI is about the demand and supply of labour. Demand for relief tends to be high, and over the last number of years, TCI employees have regularly enjoyed sufficient hours of work. However, due to the nature of temporary employment, we can not guarantee a specific number of working hours. Converserly, if the demand for labour is low, then there will be less relief work available.
11. As a TCI employee, w
hen could I receive a call to work?
TCI staff are utilized 24 hours a day, seven days a week. While on call, TCI staff would be expected to attend a shift within one hour's notice. Depending on the recall list you are placed in, you could work a variety of shifts
between three to 11.75 hours
. Some TCI employees work a mixture of eight and 12 hours shifts during the day, from Monday to Sunday. Others work a rotational schedule including days, evenings and overnight shifts seven days a week.
12. If hired as a TCI, would I be requi
red to work throughout the Eastern Health region?
No. Our TCI staff are normally assigned to a call in list that is: site specific (i.e. specific hospital;) multi-site specific (several hospitals,) or specific to a geographical region (e.g. St. John’s and surrounding area, Clarenville area, etc.)
