I received a letter from MQ CEO regarding the MT lawsuit

Posted By: MQMT on 2005-07-27
In Reply to: lawsuit - justamushroom

They have acknowledged the existance of lawsuit but in their CEO spin states only 3 (THREE) MTs are part of this action. I know I'm not part of the original 3 and I have joined the class action so either MQ CEO is blowing smoke or has his head up his A$$. Either way, it is typical of MQ CEO.

just received the paper work on the Medquist lawsuit
Seriously, no flames, anyone know whats going on?  Are we on a sinking ship here? 
MQ lawsuit letter
Yes, I received the letter yesterday.  Sounded like this investigation is going to take quite some time if they have to subpoena transcriptionist's records.  I just threw it in the round file  :)
Did anybody else get a letter from MQ about the MT's lawsuit? Any thoughts if you have?
Have not received either imail or letter
regarding this subject. Would someone please summarize such email/letter in a post for us who have not received this info as of yet. TYIF
...just went to the mailbox and have not received that letter as of yet. Thanks. nm.
well i just received my letter today.
Please back you info up. Pay cuts have not been announced. Have you received a letter? nm.


If it's a business letter you use a colon. if it's a personal letter you use a comma. nm


Lawsuit MQ

Have not heard a single peep about what is current on the big MQ lawsuit.  Still being pursued?  This is too big not to hear from anyone about updates .... anybody?   I followed this for a long time in November/December/Jan, then POOF!  Realize that the wheels spin slowing in legal-ville, but sure would like it if somebody could throw us some crumbs of information. 

And if it has just fizzled out ... SAY IT AIN'T SO!!!!!

Lawsuit MQ
Apparently it is still on.... I just received a letter today from Frank regarding holding on to all materials regarding MQ, e-mails, contracts, etc. So guess it is just moving slow as all legal proceedings do.

I have to vent.  I asked a question a few days ago, wondering if anybody heard anything about the big MQ lawsuit.  Now we all know that this is BIG.  But, not only did I only read maybe two responses (thank you, responders) to my specific question, but I have also not heard anything from anybody ELSE on this board regarding what is up with that. 

I am wondering:  a) is it under tight wraps and hush-hush for open discussion; b) do we have damage control by MQ intercepting posts of an informational nature on this;  or c) SOMETHING ELSE? 

Sure would appreciate if someone threw us a crumb.  Thanks in advance from the mushroom crew!

I don't know details, but it has to do with line counts not being correct and being cheated out of $$ and not being paid correctly.   
what there is a lawsuit over?
MQ lawsuit
I got in on the class action deal almost a year ago and I haven't noticed any difference in how I'm treated, but then when the bosses change so often they chew you out for not working on your scheduled day off because they didn't know, well.........
I think the reason we all got checks, was because of the lawsuit. Now, they can say that there were slight computer glitches or whatever, and that they have corrected them. I think their plan is for this to make them look like there was a small mistake and that they corrected it and make up for it.

However, this is ridiculous. In DocQmanage, they can do whatever the heck they want to - AND THEY DO!!! So, for the people who are saying that they feel sure that they are being paid for spaces, maybe they are; but, I assure you, most people are not being paid for spaces and other things as well.

This is just a pre-trial 'make MQ look good' thing. There is no way in the world that we would have received these checks if there had been no lawsuit filed.
We will be your fifth name for a lawsuit
If you want a fifth name, please email us.

This OP might just be looking for a lawsuit...NM

If there is an MQ merger or lawsuit, in the end, how do you think

Question on MQ lawsuit. I do not want this to be a
thread for flames or negatives, just would like a brief and simple explanation of what the actual issue(s) are for the lawsuit. 
Can't be related to MQ lawsuit

My ipay statement said is was for a DEP adjustment, but the majority of the lines in question were done on the various old platforms, Medwrite, Enterprise, etc...remember it goes back to 1998.

I got the ipay notice but no check or letter yet.  I have direct deposit but nothing in there either

MQ checks & lawsuit
Let's not forget, the checks can not be 100% reimbursement for all lines jipped out of, they only cover an error on DEP, a LOT of the issues with the atty's go back to 1998, before DEP was even a thought process, so it really can not be for the cheated lines totally.
This would be a legitimate lawsuit....
I have seen this situation before and, believe me, you have a major lawsuit on your hands and this would not be a frivolous one like so many are. You are talking about a medical professional who has taken monies up front to perform a service that he did not perform, he is withholding monies owed back to you (which is unlawfully stealing), and he fradulently dictated a report on a procedure that he did not perform. You need to consult with an attorney and see what the statute of limitations are in your state as far as the face lift aspect, but as far as the fradulent making up of a report and keeping monies owed to you, he needs to be helpd accountable. This means he has probably done this before many times to other people. The hospital is at huge fault here and is at risk for a major lawsuit. The administrator of this hospital needs to know this first hand from you or your attorney. Please don't put this off. This guy needs to be brought down to earth. He is probably a big money maker for the hospital and they won't discipline him unless you do something to start the ball rolling. If the hospital is a privately-owned company, they will pay attention to what you're saying more than if they are a non-profit hospital where the doctors tend to run the show.
No lawsuit even considered

I nor my friend have even considered a lawsuit.  I just get mad at being pre-DISQUALIFIED no matter how good I am at my work.   I have had to deal with this problem all my life, so it is nothing new. It is just that  I have never been visually disqualified for anything before in regard to work and this was a real eye-opener to me. 

And for the record.  Morbid obesity is a legal handicap and so is being left handed which I am both.  It is just sad.  Oh well... I will continue to work where I am appreciated for my job well done...and so will my friend....:)   They pay me way more anyway. 

IC vs Employee lawsuit


In re IC versus employee status.

Find us the details of this lawsuit.
you sound as if this MQ lawsuit makes you happy (sm)
in some sick and twisted way! Why would this make you happy.  Not that anything significant will come of it, I mean come on, do you really think MQ is going down the tubes? Don't get your hopes up, honey! You know, your posting name is very fitting...mushroom=fungus!
So What if lawsuit makes poster happy. So WHAT?
Why are you UNHAPPY about lawsuit.

BTW, when you come down to tearing apart and anonysmous posters screen name you have lost any sort of credibility or argument you know.
That is a whole different story than stating you "joined" the lawsuit. Its how
so much of the original MQ class action lawsuits got so screwed up information-wise to the rest of us MTs. You were probably one of the originals, proudly claiming you "joined" the lawsuit, while hundreds of us scrambled around trying to figure out what we missed and how to "join". That was the huge fiasco months back.  You are misinforming when you state you "joined" anything, cause there is NOTHING to join at this time.  Personally, I think its just "pomp" on your part, actig like you're "in the know", and making some kind of martyr stand. There is NOTHING to join, so don't misrepresent it until such time as there IS something to join. Makes the rest of the poor MTs feel worse - MQ gives no info, and then everyone else but them has "joined" a suit.  Not defending MQ - just wish folks would not "spin" the truth - same games MQ allegedly likes to play! But you, naturally, feel justified!
me too - I figured it must be the lawsuit as I am not an employee any longer nm
My girlfriend was part of that CU-7 lawsuit. She forgot all about it. SM
She went to the mailbox one day and there was a check for $7000 in there! That thing really messed her up and she had to have a hysterectomy and surgery for a perforated uterus, all kinds of stuff. She probably deserved more.
Or a corporate restructuring to head off lawsuit awards.
You said you "joined" the lawsuit. You did NO such thing! You're a liar!
How's that for spin? Didn't want to say it before, but you're right, why be polite? There is NO LAWSUIT TO JOIN NOW.  Only 3 employees are suing and we're NOT ALLOWED to join it yet.  So banter and pound your chest all you want, you joined in your dreams, sister!!
Time Warner Cable has also settled a lawsuit
in hopes of staving off billions.  They sold their customers names out on mailing lists.  Got a notice from Federal courts that if you were a customer from 1998 on, then your in.  I think you may get about a month of free cable out of it.  So looks's like Time Warner/AOL got caught and hmmmmmm that 1998 year is the same time frame as MedQuist...geez!
oops.. Wasn't "there" a major lawsuit :)
for poster below who wanted contact regarding MQMT lawsuit, this is who I talked to.

Nice to talk to and can give you info regarding MQMT lawsuit so you can decide if it is something you are interested in pursuing.

well wait til your daughter hits someone. You will lose everything in that civil lawsuit.
I mean, how ridiculous is that. Letting a 14.5 year old to get more experience. Sheesh. Let her drive at 16 with you and let her drive alone at 18, if you want her to have more experience. There's a reason why the driving age is 16, not 14.
What a lame excuse. Move forward on your lawsuit, cuz you're not gettin paid.
I never received, and neither did my
We were all at the big M. I just resigned after almost a year, and did meet all of their criteria. However, their system isn't correct and even said that I was not going to be hired when my friend asked about her referral bonus. Mind you...I had already worked there for 6 months at this point. I keep getting "I will check on it" when I ask about my sign on bonus. I gave up and left.
I have received these before too. sm
I just deleted it and ignored it.
I received this because...

I received this because I had posted on this forum about increasing my production.  This particular person emailed me through this board with that response.    And no, I am not going to send my work overseas to them for those of you who are wondering.  lol


I have received the email too
I also have received an email and called them and they mentioned AAMT, which I do not belong to either.  I have never even posted on this board before, but do receive the posting through email.  I dont know where they received my email address and they did not know either.
Any other SS employees not received their..
paycheck? I am not looking to start anything, just wondering if I am the only one who hasn't gotten paid yet?
I received cookies
I received cookies from an MT company I know longer work for and of course nothing from the ones I do work for!!
How nice that he/she received it well. (nm)
I have received several things
I've had messages from companies wanting me to subcontract, individuals sending resumes, etc. Some have mentioned getting my e-mail address from this board. I just hit delete after maybe mumbling a few *#&(#*(! Yes, their writing skills are lacking. My severely dyslexic son can form a proper sentence and spell better than these people.
No - but I received a call from them.
Did you talk with Ann? I have a friend who worked with them for a while and she liked the company but had problems that prevented her from working very much. Do you know what account you will be working on?
I just received an email
from my company saying that due to the storm the work was very low, one clinic closed and the other one was basically out of work (at least for what I do which is outpatient)....
I have received a few letters
so far.  Keep those letters to The White House coming you guys!  I am so trying to get our voices heard so that our careers may be saved.  I am addressing outsourcing, offshoring, patient security, voice recognition and anything else that can come to mind concerning transcription.  I want to have a packet of letters to mail off because that will have a greater impact versus just sending one letter here and there.  Please join me!  Deadline for sending letters is 1/28/09.  Email me if you wanna join me:)
What did you click so that you received the
copy of the test? If you clcked the 'send' button and afterwards you received the completed copy of your test unedited) what's the problem, as your test was already gone. How could you have cheated if your test was already sent?

They immediately sent you a copy of your submitted test, unedited. for your files, as one cannot save testfiles.

I do not understand where your problem is?

Just wait for their response and I hope you get hired!
Has anyone ever received the referral bonus from MQ? sm
If so, how long did it take to get it and does it only apply if you are employee status?
What state are you in -- that you received the check already?

No check here, but does show up in ipay.

What does the attached letter say?
