Lawsuit for a public board? Who are you going to sue? nm

I asked a question about a company I worked for, received 5 responses all saying the same thing, that we were paid for a holiday, which was wrong. I counted on it and was in a bind because of it.
If your facts are true, make them public. You've nothing to lose and everything to gain.
How can you be putting your head on the chopping block when you are anonymous here?

Details have not been given in your posts. Please show us ALL the details.

Why would you be putting your head on the block by pointing out supposed anomalies in the raise structure?
Any recruiter can give out that information because it's the same for everyone. Any MLS can go to the website and see it. I have it here in front of me. I would like to see you defend your statements, because I'm not seeing the proof here.

Why would you be putting your head on the block regarding incentives?
Any recruiter can give out that information, if it exists. That information also can be seen in the job boards and on the website, as it's public knowledge. I sure don't see any out there, nor have I for months.

Why would you be putting your head on the block regarding enticements?
You say they are readily viewed on job boards, but yet you can't give details. Any recruiter can give that information, too, as they post the ads on the boards. They can also be seen on the website. However, looking back over a lot of weeks of posts on various boards, I don't see one "enticement," so we're going to need YOU to point them out to us.

If the enticement is the pay structure, then you're benefitting the same as everyone else. If the enticement is the ads, well, you get the same opportunity for shift differentials, the same CMT pay, the same benefits, the same production incentives, don't you? What don't you get that you deserve?

Also in regard to enticements, I've got to ask for clarification on a statement you made:

"...look at past and future ads on MT Jobs, etc."

Do you have details on what the company is offering in the future? If so, let us all in on it so people who don't work at Transcend know what to wait for.

Finally, no one should need to email you, because all of YOUR information should be made public IF IT EXISTS, and you shouldn't fear making it public, IF IT'S TRUE. Having people email simply allows you to privately promote your version without having to publically defend the truth of of your claims.

If you can't back up your claims, then please concentrate on making the best out of your own situation, okay? It's not right to make statements that can't be supported with facts. It doesn't help the company and it doesn't help you. If you're a loyal employee you should be trying to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem. Maybe you could offer your assistance on the quality council.
How can a message be confidential if it posted on a public message board? nm

That's the best post I've seen on this board
Love it, love it, love it, love it, love it love it!!!
This is the only board I've been able to post on and

I've been a member for years here. I have a validated email address and have been using the same moniker for at least a year.

Something is not right.

Whoa! Where've you been? This board was
positively crackling with anger over all of Acusis' MT's getting a 10-15% wage cut. We all got a phone call last Friday. Maybe they just couldn't get to everybody in one day. And she conveniently didn't mention it this morning in the meeting. Since they do a pretty good job of keeping us from getting in touch with each other (unless you want to do it on their totally monitored company email), you should check in with this thread on MT Stars DAILY. It's the only way we all have of comparing notes.
Although I've seen many negatives on this board, I'm very
happy at JLG. Not having DD is the only negative I can think of.
That is the nicest thing I've seen on this board!
kk, you are one sweet person to offer a newbie a start like that! If you believe in karma, this good deed should come back to you two- or three-fold. Good luck to you both!!!
I must've gotten lost--thought this is an adult board
Go back to your friends at MySpace...you'll fit in better there.
Bye Bye Birdie. Could you email me too. I've been watching the board and interested in your findi
since I also have been on the job search from you know where. I would be interested in any information you would want to share.
Don't mean to butt in ....
When I got mine this past summer, the gal at Wal-Mart gladly set the whole thing up for me and I went and shopped.  I had to give her information in order to do so, but since I didn't (and still don't) want to spend time trying to figure it out, her willingness to do it was very much appreciated.
Wow. That's really beat. There's a butt for
Or - there is a seat for every butt! nm
Also I was the one who said butt kisser
to Teresa's post and I thought she was quite smug as well. One should not think that what is happening to others cannot happen to them. For someone (Teresa) who acts like they have a team attitude, you certainly do not. I do not want to read e-mails sent out from DRC managers saying that they understand people may have a financial issue with lack of work. I do not want other MTs sitting around stressing out and having a hard time.
butt in but trying not to be rude (NM)
Oh, god... not the 'NUT-BUTT' again.
. . right and monkeys fly out of my butt

the MTSOs or Suits cruise these boards??   Or have we forgotten WHAT COUNTRY ARE WE LIVING IN, ANYWAY?  They don't like us networking with each other?  TOUGH!  That's just tooooo baaad; OK with me if they like it, OK with me too if they don't like it.

Of course, THEY know that WE know that they're ------g us left, right and around - naturally DON'T WANT US COMPARING NOTES - sure, keep the dimwitted MTs isolated, so we can figure out a few more ways to keep exploiting them.  Don't want them comparing notes, though, because a little light might go off in their brain, and they'll tell each other, Hey, that's not right, let's do something about it.  That's the last thing they want ... for us to unite.  Decades ago, labor union opponents (i.e., Suits) found out the hard way that THERE'S STRENGTH IN NUMBERS & IN UNITY.  Because once we MTs start becoming more proactive regarding our rights, watch out, MTSO's!  

If you never even worked for MDI, butt
I don't care for crack (especially butt) either. nm
bird in the hand my butt sm
Do you call working for $5 an hour a bird in the hand? I was trying to be nice and give notice. I'm thrilled they said no. Now I can do whatever.......but not work as a slave. That is below minimum wage.
I think the public would want to be alerted
that their ss#'s and all other personal information is going to another country! With all the identity theft today, whose to know what is happening over there?
Gotta butt in here! Yes, the sound quality
is poor and it is the platform. I too left Transcend with the sound one issue.

I work as an IC also and the sound was excellent on my other accounts. So, it was not the sound card.

You have no affiliation with this company, so why would you even comment. The experiences of these MTs is real. I know, I've been there.

Also, what you are recruited for is not always what you get - been down that road with them also.

Very bad experience with that company and will never go back, ever!
Yeah...well, this butt wouldn't go in that seat!
Rolling on floor laughing my butt off.
Public Records - Nuance


I ran across the above Federal Case Dockets while searching for something else entirely.  Anyone know why Nuance Corp. is involved in so many and what they are about?  One of the complaints is racketering.  What is going on?

I agree public outrage

SPI opens BPO centre in Mangalore

Mysore, Feb.20-InSpinity (SPI), a wholly owned subsidiary of Software Paradigms International Group LLC, has signed a large contract with MedQuist, the largest provider of Medical Transcription services in the world.

As per the agreement, SPI will provide medical transcription services to Medquist up to two million lines per month within the next six months. To achieve this operationally, SPI will employ and train more than 600 new Medical Transcriptionists (MTs) at its delivery centers in Mysore and Mangalore. At present, SPI employs around 350 MTs.

Headquartered in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, MedQuist Inc transcribes more than two billion lines of text annually.

To augment its ambitious growth plans, Mysore’s IT major SPI is opening new Development/BPO centre in Mangalore by starting operations in incubation center provided by STPI. During first year’s operation, SPI plans to employ around 200 resources in the IT and ITeS field.

Sid Mookerji, CEO & MD of SPI, considers this to be a validation of the aggressive growth and productivity focused strategy adopted by InSpinity.

He said, MedQuist is a very important customer for us and we are pleased to have them on board. We expect to readily deal with MedQuist’s stringent quality and security requirements along with the planned rapid growth thanks to our well established processes and training mechanisms in the Medical Transcription area.”

V. Madhukar, Vice President – Operations, SPI, addressing a press conference at Pathrakarthara Bhavan in city yesterday, announced the terms of contract between the two companies and future plans about Mangalore expansion.

He said Clinching this large deal in these times of recession is a great morale booster not only for SPI but also for the entire IT industry. SPI is adding to its headcount and wants to increase employee base of our MT division from 350 to 1000 MTs in the next 18 months which in fact is a bigger challenge for us.

In future, SPI plans to provide Medical Transcription services to MedQuist to the tune of 6 million lines per month by 2011. To achieve this target, SPI plans to ramp up its capacity to 1000 medical transcriptionists for Med

They are a public company - they cannot lie about percentages...
If they say 20, it's 20. I have never been without work and I love it there. If you think that most companies out there are not offshoring, you are kidding yourself.

I believe them when they say it will never take the place of domestic MTs. They are growing faster than any company out there - read their financials, all public record.
One thing to inform the public - Another to

come across as stalker/unstable.  As someone who BTDT with an MTSO failing to pay as agreed (but did in fact pay late), I can appreciate a fair warning about a company.  I do disagree when the warning stops being fair and starts coming across as the poster having some personal issues that this board cannot cure.

In my situation, I read this board about an MTSO who failed to pay - posted by one person who seemed to be fair in the posting.  I still took a position with the MTSO.  There was incredible disorganization with the owner and my pay was late.  I let them know that I could not invest more of my skills until the pay was rec'd.  They got it to me and I returned their equipment.  The warning had me prepared not to lose my shirt, but did not keep me from giving the MTSO a fair shot.  I have seen that MTSO move into a more trustworthy category than when I had my experience with them and would even like to think I had something to do with that.  However, I do not feel that would have happened if I had come across in a fanatical manner or if I had in fact done anything but acted in a way I could be proud of.

Just saying, I don't see that happening with this poster about this particular MTSO and this particular situation.  Just saying, is all, that if an MT wants others to give fair consideration to an allegation, that MT has the responsibility of behaving in a way that would keep people listen and giving credence to the facts.  People stop listening when the postings become unbalanced and start projecting that perception towards the original poster.  Just saying, is all.  Good luck with whatever the OP decides, but I hope that poster finds some balance in his/her life.

Yes, she has her nose up Amit Chattergee's butt big time.
I have proof that she offshores.  I also have correspondence where she deals with Amit, owner of MTIndia.
Not happy about WMX changes, but I have to get my butt busy and type today. (sm)

Yesterday I spent waaaaaay too much time on these boards and not enough time on the keys. 

Will catch up on lunch and after shift.  Can't give it up totally you know.

Good luck to all  of us in the industry.  What is good today may be crap tomorrow.  We just never know.

I agree public should know. I think drs. know but choose to ignore.
answer crafted by public relations?

It gives absolutely no information yet attempts to close the subject. I asked how is the work load, pay rate, etc.? Anyone else care to comment or is it a no-no to speak about this company.

new accounts and lots of work, and before someone says it, I'm not management, just an employee.
its not on their PUBLIC web site, it was an internal explaination for the email they sent around.

the first page of the Company board will be removed to open up space for other companies to post.  Enjoy the new Medquist board set up for you.

Thank you,


Are you the same condescending person the word board? I thought this was called "Company Board.&#
Didn't you post this on 03/04/06 on both the Company Board and the Hospital/Clinic MT Board?


This was moved from main board to company board. Replies don't transfer. nm
