Tostrud Law Group is currently investigating wage and hour violations for Respiratory Therapists. RT’s are a vital part of a lung or heart patients’ care. Because they specialize in airway management and are often in charge of life support for patients in the ICU or emergency departments, RT’s are often called back to work during their meal and rest breaks in violation of labor laws. Most RT’s are required to sign out a pager at the beginning of their shift and keep it on them until their shift is over, even during rest periods.
If you are a respiratory therapist who has been improperly called back to duty during a meal or rest period or, not properly compensated for doing so, contact TLG and we will investigate your situation.
