Posted: Apr 30, 2012

Who is the best company to work for as an employee without weekends? I used to work for AssistMed but didn't like working the weekends.

no weekends - most do

[ In Reply To ..]
Most companies want at least one weekend day in the MT's schedules now days, kinda hard to get around that. Maybe as an IC you can avoid the weekend, but not much as an employee anymore.

Every where I know wants either Sun - Thurs - or Tues - Sat.

you gotta figure, the hospitals are open with sick people coming and going 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. So the dictation never ends.

If you are lucky to get a clinic account - then you might be able to

avoid weekends, but a lot of clinics are moving to the point and click systems. Good luck!

Statutory Employee Vs. Traditional Employee Status Inquiry
Oct 10, 2013

I'm seeing more and more job postings for statutory employee status.  I'm trying to figure out what an appropriate line rate request equivalent would be since I would be responsible for withholding income taxes.  For example if the traditional employee line rate is 8 cpl for transcription what would I need to request for statutory status?  The same or more? ...

Employee Versus IC PT Status
Nov 23, 2009

I have an interview tomorrow with a company for PT employee status.  I have been an IC for many years and love it.  I am a bit concerned about going employee as I am used to the flexibility of being able to take time off for my kids' school parties, fall, winter and spring breaks and such without it affecting my job.  Can anyone give me a clue as to how employee status works and if some companies are more flexible than others?? I would love to stay an IC, but haven't f ...

Question Regarding Employee Status
Dec 04, 2010

I've been an IC MT for 10+ years and, as such, I have no benefits, but LOVE the flexibility of being able to do what I want/need during the day as long as the work gets done on time.  When you are an employee working for an MTSO, do you have any kind of flexibility?  If your scheduled work time is 8:00-4:00, do they allow any flexibility for such things as 15 minutes to drop off/pick up your child from school?  Or an hour to go to an appt?  I see a lot here where there i ...

I never talk to any other MTs really, just sign on, work and sign off, so I just wanted some feedback from other MTs.

I don't know anyone else in the business and would just like to have something to compare my production to. Second, does anyone out there have employee status??? I see companies offering benefits, PTO and all that great stuff, but i'm assuming you have to be an employee not ...

Question About Employee Status
Aug 24, 2013

I have a general question for working as employee status. I know everyone's answer will be different depending on which company. I've been an MT for 15 years always as an IC and never could get myself to take an employee status job even having been offered several because the pay was too low, but something to consider as there aren't many companies to pick from anymore.  My other option is to just chuck all this and do something else.  How do health benefits work for em ...

Employee Versus IC Status
Sep 17, 2014

I have been a medical transcriptionist for 22 years' and have worked as an employee for most of that time.  I am still about 10 years out from retirement and am trying desparately to hang on to my beloved profession of medical transcription, but I am seeing it slip away from me little by little.  Companies who hire employees seem to seldom have enough work to go around, harangue their employees through QA, and tie benefits to production.  All these things combined are making it difficult ...

Employee Status Minimum Wage
Mar 13, 2015

Does anyone know if it is legal to not pay at least minimum wage as due to lack of work when you are expected to work anyway?  Third-party MT companies are getting rich, and we are being treated very unfairly.  I have been doing this for 35 years.  I have spent 2 stints, 5-years each, with at-home companies, and they could care less about us.  At age 56, I was hoping to retire from the company I work for now, but I cannot make a living.  Also, very nontransparent line counting, basically ...

Confused About Difference Between Statutory Employee And IC Status.
Jan 22, 2010

I keep trying to find something definitive that spells out the differences between the two, but it all seems so vague or, at least, different companies seem to treat each differently. Specifically, since my company recently converted everyone over to statutory status, can they require the employees to set and maintain a strict schedule as they had when they were full-time regular employees, or should/do the statutory employees have more leeway in that regard, more along the lines of an IC? ...
