Medical Transcription Industry Employment Law

The Law Offices of Kevin J. Dolley has extensive and particularized knowledge of the medical transcription industry within the healthcare field. Our Firm has substantial experience in medical transcription related disputes nationwide.

Medical Transcription Industry Developments

The industry has overall been changing dramatically and dynamically with the impact of technological advances in software and speech recognition technology, outsourcing and globalization, and prioritization of privacy in electronic health records under HIPAA.

Front-line typing and editing are performed by workers who either work from home or at a healthcare provider. These workers are generally identified as medical transcriptionists, medical language specialists, healthcare transcriptionists, scribes, speech recognition specialists, medical records clerks or assistants, or lead transcriptionists. Mid-level personnel commonly include editors and quality control personnel. These employees are often overseen by a transcription coordinator, scheduling manager, practice manager, transcription manager or regional manager. Medical transcription companies are often run by executives or individuals who have a history of work within the industry.

Medical Transcription Employment Law

Our Firm has achieved excellent results in employment disputes in the medical transcription industry. In this industry, we have handled many different matters, including questions regarding classifications under the FLSA, payment of overtime and/or minimum wages, and related compliance concerns. See Medical Transcription Wage & Hour Law. Legal counsel on these types of issues is critical because these matters may give rise to not only lawsuits, but enforcement actions by various government agencies, including but not limited to federal and state departments of labor and the Internal Revenue Service. We further handle traditional labor and employment matters involving assertions of discrimination, including those focused on claims of disability, FMLA, pregnancy, retaliation, hostile work environment, or wrongful termination. In addition, our industry experience gives us special insight into matters related to the review, drafting, preparation and/or amendments of employment handbooks. See Business Litigation & Consulting. Whether your situation involves specific questions about a medical transcriptionist or business practices related to line counts or quality assurance, or broader questions about legal compliance and potential liabilities in the industry, we have the knowledge to address these matters.
