If you only complaint is QA telling you something different, then show them !!
However, you said the account was too difficult for you. So, I assumed you could not handle it. If the QA dept is incorrect, point it out to them and show them where they are giving you wrong info. Simple as that, if that is really all it is.
Jennifer.... How are you telling people where to work

when down below you were asking questions about where to work, how to get a job, you seem to know an awful lot for someone asking questions.  What is up with that?? 

BBB complaint
I don't know why, but I remember a few years ago that they added a fee to place a complaint - at least in Texas.
was there any complaint
posted here,,it was a questions.  Managements perhaps, guilty perhaps.  How can you interpret asking a question as a complaint? 
I am not sure what the complaint was...and please
don't let your 10-year-old on the forum. Your child just said thumbs up to all the thumb suckers.
You can file a complaint with the
distrinct attorney in the city in which they are located and this should put an end to this nonsense.  Rubber checks are illegal all over the country.  Then file a case in small claim court and include ALL expenses you incurred from late charges, etc., as a result of this check 
How do you file a complaint in CA?
Who would you file a complaint with if the company who is not paying is in California? The California Labor Board, Attorney General's office, and Better Business Bureau?
I don't understand the complaint either. sm
Maybe she has another cushy gig lined up and that's why she isn't mad.
Really, not one single complaint??
That was my complaint as well. You waste sm
a lot of time filling in demos. I tried it for about 6 months, but I just could not seem to up my count whatsoever due to that. I will say I never had any ESL docs.
file a complaint with the
Better Business Bureau in your area as well as the area the owner of the MT company lives.  This does not take but a few minutes of your time.  Consider calling the police to ask what can do?  It is illegal to bounce checks........ Good luck!
another way to post complaint...
against those companies that steal our services by not paying or paying with bad checks etc. Like D&L in PA. All corporations file with Dunn and Bradstreet - they assist these small companies grow their business - send them an e-mail informing them of the companies practice so it goes in their files - anyone searching them out for business should know how they treat their independent contractors and employees. If all credit reporting agencies can do this - why not the people actually getting shafted.
Complaint filed
I think we all should go online and fill out the complaint form and mail it in along with a copy of all the complaints on this site.  I would love to see that disrespectful SOB do some jail time.  
Why would it cost to make a complaint? -sm
If they start charging, no one will ever make any complaints.
You can file a complaint online at www.bbb.org
I didn't even say it was a complaint, just true
it is nice to get the information you need as an MT, and some places give you nothing, but it was an incredible amount of books, I've never gotten that many before,and I truly did not have room for them all, not a complaint, just a statement.
My only real complaint is that the medical ins
has really deteriorated this year. There is always lots of work and they are good about giving PTO at least my supervisor is. Sometimes I have to jump around to different accounts but they are the same accounts all the time so I can pretty much get used to them. Hope that helps you.
Tell her to file a complaint with Dept SM
of Labor and let them tell the Dept. of Labor that.
Dictators who don't know what a Chief Complaint is. (sm)
Here are some chief complaints: Chest pain. Shortness of breath. Back pain. Type that and now you have some context and you're ready for the history of present illness. But so many dictators want to include all sorts of patient information, like age and details of what happened. That is not a chief complaint guys. Comprehend the headings and let them help you save time! Grrrr.
No sweat from my behind. I have not one complaint about this chair. nm
I did file an SS8 complaint and you are correct - snm

Yes, you will have to refile your taxes if you are found to be a an employee and not an IC.  You will not be assessed penalties and interest on anything you may owe.  Remember some of the things you deduct as an IC are no longer deductible or fully deductible as an employee.  Your employer will be hit with back taxes, pentalties and interest. 

I've heard people say the won a huge amount of money when they did this and you know what, they are lying.  The company will not owe you anything directly.  Any changes that take place are between you and the IRS and the company and the IRS.  There really are no winners.

Depending on  your tax situation, you may owe or you may get some money back.  In my case, I broken even, but I had some extenuating tax circumstances.  I had to deal with an IRS rep and I was panicked because for one year I owed a huge chunk of change and for another they owed and I was afraid that I was going to have to pay up to get back if you know what I mean.  This is the IRS afterall, but after final review and analysis with the IRS rep, we just called it even (even though it was not exactly so) and the IRS signed off on it. 

Was a huge eye opener for me  The entire process probably took 18 months from the time I filed my complaint.

so, their Quality Complaint is the reason can't use them ....
Shortage of work has been a MAJOR complaint....
with all 4 MTs that I know who work at MDI.  We are all trying to stay loyal to them, but it seems as though no one is listening and they just keep hiring!!  If you have work, you should be counting your blessings, but it is only fair to let those people seeking employment at MDI to know what a lot of us are experiencing. 
File a Complaint with Labor Board
File a complaint with labor board in their state and familiarize yourself with the complaint form for retaliation in case they try to penalize you.
Do a DQS search here. Several places use it and the same complaint is heard. nm
Anyone filed a complaint after not receiving a paycheck? sm
Stopped working at Breitner 3 months ago.  I never received my last paycheck, and the one before that was short by $100.  They owe me about $1,000 total.  I am not counting the 30% trimmed off my line counts for 8 straight weeks in Extext to cover headers and footers when it really only equals 5 to 8 lines.  Has anyone ever filed with the labor board on them?  Just asking because I have read posts on here that they threaten & just want to see what I am in for if I do file. 
If there is anyone higher up, send them a copy with a complaint.
If the person who sent it is the last buck in that company, send a reply along with the original message telling them to cease an desist harassing you and that if anything else like that happens again you will be taking appropriate action to ensure it will not happen again. Print out/save your copies. Then, call the office and tell them the same either to their face or the next person in line. Tell them you are making a note of the call, who you talked to, what was said and why. Do not partake in any harassment in return, do not sink to their level. Plainly tell them to stop or steps will be taken. Doesn't really matter to anyone here what was said or why. If you feel you are being harassed you need to handle the situation calmly and promptly.

Good luck.
so, your complaint is too much work, can't get your line count up?
Four Seasons Transcription: How To File A Complaint
If you would like to file a complaint with the BBB regarding payment not received from Robin Hall and Four Seasons Transcription, you can do it online at http://vabbb.org/newindex.html.  This is the Virginia branch of the BBB.  Any information such as a phone number of Four Seasons, you can find on her website at www.fourseasonstranscription.com.  I have already filed a complaint.  This is the first step I'm taking to get my payments for the last 6 weeks.  WARNING:  DO not work for Robin Hall.  Any complaints you hear here are true!  She uses fuzzy words to tell you when your payment is coming.  She DOES NOT pay or DOES NOT pay regularly or on time. 
Call JACHO and make a complaint
As I posted earlier I have a friend who asked me to review his medical records. For his initial ER visit which was for a vasovagal episode, it was found that he had low heart rate so they scheduled him for an emergent pacemaker. He's 90. Anyway, as I was reading the ER report with lots of errors BTW (they went to VR 8 months earlier), I found that part of the ER report was on something called a T system in the ER and it wasn't sent to him on his initial request from med records. So I called med records and asked them why the ER course was on the T system and why it wasn't sent with the record. They didn't have an explanation and said they would forward the rest of the report to my friend. So here we have an ER report in 2 parts and one doesn't seem to get merged with the other. I wondered why JACHO allowed that to happen so I called them and they told me to file a complaint. Well, I will ask my friend if he wants to do that but I will strongly recommend that he does. Then we can point out all the mistakes that the editors at the hospital missed. That might make them sit up and take notice. At least I hope.
That's pretty hateful. From what I have read the complaint is not just VR but a sm

lack of work, and a seeming lack of caring on the part of mangement regarding what the MTs are facing.  I hate VR, but I was not one of those who hated the advent of WP or anything new -- quite the opposite.  I love new things and new technology!  But VR benefits no one but the company and MTs who do not type fast.  I could type the report myself much faster than I could edit the garbage put in front of me.  So ... great ... I could spend the same amount of time and get half the money.  And you wonder why they are upset?

Fortunately, I no longer work there, although my work at KS has dried up so much I wonder what is happening there.  Fortunately, I have a couple of other jobs, but everything makes me nervous nowadays.

make complaint to your state attorney general sm

google.com you particular state attorney general and read up a bit. Here in California I know I have read things in the newspaper where Jerry Brown was investigating this or that and taking action, scams was one thing.  Type up the problem encountered, find the website and send an email with all the facts (complete) so that enables a proper investigation.  If nobody complains, they get away with it.  They depend on people not knowing what to do, or feel, what is the use.

Here is a link for my state, can click the titles, they open


Stop the mudslinging crap about all companies. If you have a legitimate complaint and

can BACK IT UP, then feel free to post, however if all you want to do is consistently mudsling with no real facts, take it somewhere else.

And your complaint is? Do you expect a house call and group hugs?
That was not a complaint - just a statement. Can't figure out the companies workflow problems.
Go to your State Labor Board & for a few bucks, file a complaint.
as you can see, no one else is telling theirs either-sm
and they don't want anybody jumping on their bandwagon's either. They were very quick to mention who they had bad experiences with, but no one is telling who they are happy with, other than for the sarcastic MQ and Diskriter.
You just don't know - I'm telling you ..........
they'll hate it.
keep telling yourself that
over and over until you really believe it; say it like a mantra. There is nothing wrong with talking about what is going on as this affects current MTs and could potentially affect many other MTs. I am willing to keep an open mind as well as it seems others who have posted are as well; however, one cannot just look at one side of the story. There are questionable things.
She might be telling it like it is but...
I am sure there is a much more polite way of saying it. I know I wouldnt appreciate be spoken to in that manner.
Always telling us at OSI they will do this
? Why are you telling us this?
I mean, good luck. I just do not understand your attitude and why you are making this huge statement about your big decision to stay and telling us when you plan to work, etc.

Maybe you are directing this to someone in particular and I didn't catch it.
Thanks for telling me how to do this.
I do not have much experience doing zipped files.  Anyway I will try what you said.  Sounds easy enough.  Again thank you.  
Right. Just keep on telling yourself
Repeat it over and over again. I'm sure you can convince yourself with a little practice.
Why are they telling you they will be out
I would refer all of these to the supervisor. This is not part of your job.
But telling somebody to look for another job
is more or less avoiding to confront the issue all together, and throw out the bath with the child in it.
Telling you it was not a lie
Well, there is an old saying that if certain people's lips are moving, you know they are lying.....Just sayin'. If the shoe fits, wear it and if not, it plain old don't fit.
would you mind telling me (sm)

this Cindy-person's last name. You can E/M me if you want, in fact, I'd prefer it that way. I worked for a Psycho Maniac named Cindy before, and wonder if they're the same person!


gapeachxx@yahoo.com...thanks a bunch!

She's telling the truth about this one. It is
terrible, no work, system is out of order a few times a day, and they just hire more and more people when the accounts have no work on them. 
Well, they are not telling the truth! sm
I was offered an incentive package to stay with them and that was on eScription! I turned it down and left anyway. Prefer working for Americans!
Not to flame but telling me I don't

Thank you for mentioning things in your latest post that you left out of your first.  See how easily one can jump to conclusions?

For what it is worth, I ran my own daycare for 10 years.  I know EXACTLY what it is like to be the one responsible for every aspect of running a business day in and day out, when people don't show up or go to lunch and don't come back, having to meet laws from varies state agencies that are contrary to one another and smile the whole time.  I've started work at 5 in the morning and finished at 9 at night (while trying to raise my own two young children).  I know what it is like to cook for 95 kids EVERY day for a year because I couldn't keep good help.  I know that until I converted all my private investment into a nonprofit organization, I could not achieve the success with my business that I was able to do.  Imagine working for 10 years and having NOTHING left of it but a good reputation, no retirement plan, no assests, nada, because the effects you left on people and the benefits you offered were worth all of it.  Would you be willing to do that?  Not many would, I bet.

When you want to yell at me some more and show your true colors, you will turn away the good MTs whom you were trying to entice in your original post.  See how easy it was to fly off the handle.

I do wish your business well, but I stand by what I said.  I save you money by working from home and doing what I do.  Every year I get devalued by the onslaught of forces I cannot control.  If you want to toot your own horn, I would suggest a marketing consultation next time.
