Registered Behavior Technician files an Unpaid Overtime Case Against Hopebridge for Unlawful Break Deductions and other Off-the-Clock Work

Our firm has filed an unpaid overtime case against Hopebridge, LLC (“Hopebridge”) related to its failure to compensate hourly, non-exempt registered behavior technicians (“RBTs”) for its companywide unlawful break policy, including that it required RBTs to clock out for all breaks and “meal breaks” regardless of how short. Hopebridge maintained a written policy that required RBTs to clock out for all breaks of 15 minutes or more, but it required employees to clock out for all breaks. Despite clocking out for a “meal break,” RBTs regularly performed work during such breaks. In addition to its unlawful break policy, Hopebridge failed to pay registered behavior technicians for all overtime work performed for several other reasons. First, RBTs were not performed for pre-shift work they performed off-the-clock prior to the scheduled start of their shifts. Second, RBTs were not paid for all time spent attending pre-shift group meetings. Third, RBTs were not paid for time spent working during occupational therapy services sessions. Fourth, registered behavior technicians were not paid for work performed during speech therapy services sessions. Finally, Hopebridge failed to pay RBTs for all work they performed after the scheduled end of their shifts.
