This transcription company employs independent contractors under IRS 1099 regulations; however, it is very vague and elusive about how much it will actually pay for transcription services, and then reduces the amounts quoted in their “employment” papers. For example, they quote a $40 – $80 flat rate, and end up paying their contractors less than $1.00 per transcribed page, without notifiying the contractor or stating why. The owners/staff are insulted when questioned for details of their check payments to their ICs. Their website gives an address of 6041 Burnt Hicklory Trail, Powder Springs, GA 30127, but their company checks give a Dallas, GA address. | Pierce Group Atlanta is in direct violation of the IRS stipulations for 1099 IC employment; and, also in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act, in that they impose a master-slave relationship upon their Independent Contractors. Reporting information to send your certified letters about this agency, for both the IRS and Fair Labor Standards Act, is as follows: | Internal Revenue Service, P. O.
