Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) agencies for their failure to properly compensate Registered Behavioral Technicians (RBT’s) for the full breadth of work expected of them. RBT’s report that they are expected to not only work the billable hours during which they complete therapy sessions with patients, but also to complete administrative tasks for which they are not being adequately or at all compensated. These tasks include, but are not limited to, cleaning and organizing session rooms, inputting patient data, and writing individualized reports and notes regarding patient performance in therapy sessions. RBT’s contend that they are often paid only for billable hours, that is during their sessions with patients, or if they are paid for this “admin time,” it is limited to a time period shorter than what is required in order to complete the work. While these tasks may be paramount to the job, per the federal Fair Labor Standards Act, RBT’s must be compensated fairly and completely for the entirety of the work expected of them, even and especially when it is completed outside of billable hours.
Are you an RBT who fears that they may have been completing unpaid labor through any of the above described practices or others?
If so, we would like to speak with you. Please complete the contact form on this page, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or give us a call at (202) 470-3520 for more information.
