    Correct Answer
    B. Reporting pay
    Explanation
    Reporting pay compensates employees who arrive at work but find that no work is available. It ensures that employees are paid for their time and effort in showing up to work, even if there is no work for them to do. This helps to motivate employees and provides them with some financial security, as they are still compensated for their time and any expenses incurred in commuting to work. On-call pay, travel pay, and none of the above are not applicable in this scenario.

    A job description is a written document that outlines the tasks, responsibilities, and qualifications required for a specific job position. It provides a detailed description of the work to be done, including the job title, duties, required skills, and sometimes the reporting structure. It helps both the employer and potential candidates to understand the job requirements and expectations. It is used in recruitment, performance evaluations, and setting job expectations.
