Can you go out for the day?
Plan anything with your family without fear of it being interrupted or cancelled?
Can you get drunk? Sleep in?

None of the above.
Ergo you're working.
If you have to be available to work, you're working.

Why should you take the risk if there are calls or not?
Assume there are and request to be paid as such.

All IMO of course.
