I have the same situation working for surgeons for 10+ years as a medical transcriptionist. They informed me they would be making me a contract laborer last Friday. They had me doing other things as well as Transcription, but they are now taking those away from me. With only doing Transcription, I will be doing good to make minimum wage. They still want to pay me my benefits, but I think that is so I cannot get unemployment. If you don't mind me asking, did you find out if you qualify for unemployment? I support my youngest son and mother w/cancer. They didn't give me much notice and now I will not even be able to afford her cancer medicine next month, so I am completely panic stricken. Anyone have any idea what I should do? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
If you get time and thanks much for reading.
