Medical Transcriptionists Are Entitled to Overtime Compensation

The Law Offices of Kevin J. Dolley represents medical and lead transcriptionists in recovering unpaid overtime compensation. Commonly, medical transcriptionists are compensated per line of transcription completed. Transcriptionists commonly work long hours to complete their work assignments.

Per Line Transcriptionists Are Entitled to Overtime Pay

Hospitals and other employers of medical transcriptionists commonly fail to pay per line medical transcriptionists time and a half the regular rate of pay for hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week. It is a violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) for employers to not pay medical transcriptionists time and a half their regular rate of pay for overtime hours worked.

It is a common practice in the health care industry for employers to not pay medical and lead transcriptionists time and a half for work performed beyond 40 hours per work week.

Attorney Kevin J. Dolley is currently involved in federal litigation to protect the right of medical transcriptionists to overtime pay and is currently reviewing and accepting cases for medical transcriptionists seeking unpaid overtime compensation. Just because you are a medical transcriptionist not paid as an hourly employee, you are still entitled to receive a higher rate of overtime pay for hours worked beyond 40 hours in a workweek. There is a prevailing misperception in the health care industry that per line medical transcriptionists are not entitled to overtime. Not paying medical transcriptionists overtime compensation is illegal and a violation of the FLSA.
