I didn't realize that they wouldn't.
Legal or not legal overtime question.
My friend works for an MTSO who assigns dictators.  You are supposed to keep up with your assigned dictator whatever that takes.  She is overloaded and working 50-60 hours a week.  She is an employee.  They say they do not pay overtime and do not have to pay overtime but she is expected to get those dictators current and keep them current.  I say because she is an employee the federal law of a 40-hour work week and overtime apply.  She has asked everyone from her team lead to the HR person and they say they do not pay overtime.  I say that is not even legal if she is in fact an employee.  What is correct? 
Only jobs post on Job board!! nm
only jobs post on job board
I was asking a question about a company on the company board and it completely disappeared. It's not on the job board or man board...I just replied to my own post to ask the question again though.
MTSOs must post their own jobs
not all companies post jobs here -

why bother being so rude.

Hardly any jobs out there post the salary.

I don't think it matters if it's transcription or what.  I can't imagine testing for a company before calling them and flat out asking what the pay rate is for the position being offered.  What a total waste of time for both the company and the applicant. 

...and I personally do not think it is inappropriate to laugh at a ridiculous rate and slam down the phone either.  I think the asshats out there who are offering a nickel a line need to get laughed at and rudely hung up on to boot.  None of this PC politeness garbage of thanking them for their time either if they pull a number like that out of their hineys.  A man sure as heck wouldn't stand for that kind of pud pullin'...why should we?!  

Wonder why these companies post jobs

with low line rates but requiring years of experience.  Who out there is desperate enough to fall for this?  Maybe they should try an overseas job board somewhere.

why is OSI allowed to post jobs on this site??? SM
It is on their website that they have an offshore office in the Phillipines. 
Maybe it's because they post jobs and never respond to people.
Has anyone actually had them respond to a resume?
You are not supposed to post jobs on the job board
Again...you are not to post jobs on the job board unless you work in the capacity to recruit.
Did you read XO post? She said 23 jobs posted in 1
This site USED to post in house hospital jobs - sm
And this is just MY opinion, but I think what probably happened is that the hospitals were probably getting bombarded with every MTSO service contacting them, and individuals contacting them about outsourcing their work, and it probably became too much for them. An acquaitance mentioned one time that she had advertised on this board for on site and specified that it was on site, along with very specific job specifications, and apparently it didn't matter - everybody and their brother applied for the job, including waitresses and nannies who had never even had one iota of medical terminology, let alone job experience.

That's just my 2 cents
You missed my point in jobs knockin post and the
you want.  If you like MTSO you are with now, get more work from there.  If not go after what you want with different MTSO, different job, whatever.  Whats the big deal with askin for more work with MTSO you are with, if you like them.  No different that asking to work for (by applying to) any other MTSO. A real pro knows to get proactive and steer you life in the direction you want it to go.
To Moderator: Is Seroesh Saleem Akhtar allowed to post on the jobs board?

I can't afford to stay with VR. If they paid more, I'd stay.
The situation sucks. I really liked this company when I started there. I know they read these forums, and they are aware that we are unhappy over VR line rates. They stroke us with cute emails and say we're the best, but I can't feed my family on praise. They're turning into another MedQuist, and so I'll be leaving.
Cherrypicking is when you work from a pool of jobs and being able to reject the worst jobs to those
Monster Jobs and Career Builder usually have a few path jobs. nm
Don't think any do except for those in-house jobs. Some QA jobs are paid hourly. nm
They didn't take our jobs, QT gave them our jobs. The account is now
back in the hands of US MTs, or will be in just a couple of weeks.  
Stay low and stay very, very quiet. Do not
ask questions, do not talk to the supervisors unless forced to. The answer will always be the same, that you are the only one who has an issue, everything else is perfect. Never mention anyone's name. This place has the mentality of the Borg, everyone has been assimilated, which means if your supervisor does not like you, or does not like your friend, you have no chance. You associate with so and so, so you are exactly like them. That quickly goes through the Borg network and every team lead, ROM, and person in management, including HR, is aware of it. You'll be labeled a trouble maker and your life will not be worth living. Any trial to clear your name will be done in the fashion of the trial of witches. You are in a dunking chair - if you drown you are innocent but it is too late by then.

Remember, a ROM never makes a mistake and never tells something that isn't true. They are perfect (and nastier than a pack of hiennas.)

If you run out of work, it is your fault. You are just lazy. Can't make enough to take care of your family? Too bad, you need to work harder.

And forget getting an answer from management. It doesn't
happen. So, as before, stay low and very quiet.

And do a good job? You can be assured that if you do a good job, do what you are supposed to do, and stay quiet, no one will even recognize your name. They have no idea where you work, what your schedule is, or that you even belong to Transcend.

Are MTs that are looking for jobs finding good jobs right now with everyone looking or is it
getting more difficult to find a good job.  I am most interested in jobs for experienced MTs with more than 10 years service.  I wonder if it is better to put a resume on or just keeping applying or what is the best way to go about this.
That is not legal to do that. NM
what is legal
Contact the IRS if they want a "set in stone" schedule. If you have to give them one you are definitely an employee by IRS guidelines and they can be sued. I think you can go to IRS.gov or something on the Internet and find out about this.
This is not legal....
They can only get away with it if the employees allow that to happen. You can contact your local wage and hour division of the US Dept. of Labor for info
Yep. The federal government made it perfectly legal for companies to sell off America thousands of jobs at a time with the WTO and NAFTA. Sweet, huh? And the companies doing it for the most part try to be hush-hush about all of it because they know how people would react. It happens more than you know.
Everything was legal
If you had read older posts - I drew the difference in what I made as an IC and what my weekly unemployment pay was - i applied for jobs every week - both online and offline. There's no scheme to it - it's just what it is. KS was only upset because they didn't know the laws in my state and they got caught in the way they handled things.
No, it's not legal
You wrote: I just don't think it's right to ask me to find a new profession for the next 12 months. Apparently it's legal, but that doesn't make it right.

I think what attorney #2 is trying to say to you is that it is NOT legal... that they cannot stretch the definition of a noncompete clause that far...

Because they CAN. It is legal. They want to see
Is it even legal
for them to tell you you cannot work for another company? Frankly, it is none of their business what you do in your time you are not working for them.
this is not legal

According to the IRS, whether you work as an IC or an employee, you have to be paid what is agreed upon.  As an IC, you have to be paid upon a mutually-agreeable rate and as an employee (depending on the stste) they have to give you written notice of the pay change with at least 5-7 business days but, they can then change the pay.

File a claim with the employment agency in the company's state and that will fix it.

Is this legal? sm
My understanding is that employer provides necessary equipment for employee.  Not so for IC, who provides his/her own equipment.  But to charge an employee to use equipment to do the work of the company?
I do not think it is legal
for any company to tell you you cannot work for another company in your off-hours, provided, of course, that you do not use the original company's equipment to do so. Why are you working for such low pay? There are plenty of companies out there that will pay well if you're good.
I don't see a problem legal-wise.  Is it ethical?  No.
????? Legal has nothing to do with this
board. You can start just about any thread you want on here, within reason. Do you care to name the company so others will know??
There is nothing legal to do with this. While
it is ridiculous, if she agreed to it not much to be done. Companies can offer any rate of compensation, it is up to the individual to accept or decline.
is this legal?

when i pull up patient demographics i can see that person's (along with everyone who has been to that hospital) social security number....so if i were a criminal i have the name, the date of birth, the ssn, alot of information about them in the report and a feild day with indentity theft.....surely this cannot be legal???? any thoughts?

Is this legal transcription?
If so, I answered their ad on MT jobs. They stated they would provide info on cpl upon receipt of a "viable" resume. Well, I sent my resume, got a lot of Word docs in return, but no mention of cpl. However, I did read in their material where they pay you after they get paid. Frankly, I just won't take that chance. I'm not working for a month before I get paid. It also sounded like they want you to work full time and be at their beck and call ("flexible" as they call it). Just didn't pass the smell test, IMO. More info on the work at home mom boards.
I don't think this is legal. Check it out.
Legal Transcription
I am a MT who may want to cross over to legal trans because of the BS...anybody know any good companies to try???
is this legal/legit?

I love the company I work for.  I love the people, love the work.  Only one complaint:  They deduct $12.50 out of each paycheck for a total of $25. each month for rental of their software.  They said they were told they had to do that if we were IC's.  We use our own computers, or rent theirs, so why should we pay to use a version of Word? I have never had anyone else do this in 15 years.  Also, they want to charge a fee to do direct deposit.  I've never seen that charged for either.  Is this Kosher or should I say something?  If so, what?

No, it is *NOT* legal for one person to tell another
that they can't earn a living for a year. Here's what I would do. I would sign the noncompete agreement; however, I would cross off the part about not working for 12 months for a competitor and make a notation that your attorney has advised that this part of their contract is illegal and unenforceable. Send it back to them and see what they have to say about it. They also can't withhold severance pay for refusing to sign a contract AFTER the fact of being hired and laid off. They're opening themselves up to a lawsuit, if you ask me.
Probably legal but not ethical. nm
Without your permission it is not legal.
Mandatory OT? Is that even legal?
The recipient probably ignored the legal - sm
disclaimer contained in the email she received the letter under.  Oh, yes, a company would want her working for them in a heartbeat - LOL.  Follows directions, check - oops, not.  Adheres to confidentiality rules, check, oops not.  You're absolutely right though, it is HER letter, but HER letter that most likely came with a confidentiality disclaimer.
Is this legal, for employee to be. SM
charged a fee to use company equipment to do company work?  I know IC must provide his/her own equipment, but I do remember reading that employer must provide tools of work for EMPLOYEE.
Probably just want to make sure your legal
I have had companies request this of me to verify I am a US citizen.  Probably nothing to worry about.
Legal Question

Does anyone know as an MTSO if we have to retain the medical records for a former client that no longer does business with us?


Don't know the legal aspects, but why
would you want to keep records of someone who no longer contracts your services? They have the records there. The only thing I could see is if you have to keep them for a certain time period in case the client loses them.
Well, that info is legal....
Nice huh?
