I was one let go 9/12/17 in a listen-only conference call with no warning. i was working on a Canadian account so the cyber attack didn't affect my work the entire time, nor did the hurricane. No one from HR would return my calls and they shut off my ability to email them on their system. I would never have chosen to work for Nuance, but they bought out the company I was working for and we just rolled over into the pathetic arms of Nuance. Live and learn, my friends.
Story is true, they are laying off regularly in short waves and disguising as if it is not layoffs. I am also once affected
I know they lost some of their accounts because the company I am working for now picked some of them up.
I know it is true I am one of those, the day after hurricane Irma hit (9-12) I was let go. I totally believe I was singled out because I was out of power/internet, and unable to work due to the fact a person I recommended for the job after I started is still staying, but she had power/internet and was working the whole time. They are actually asking people to change their schedules to the one I worked (midnights). There will be no way to prove this, but that is what is in my heart and no can make me change my mind on that. Wwhen they finally contacted me on 9-15 they said no unused PTO time to be paid back.
The story is correct. I can confirm that Nuance fired at least 700 employees including with 35 managers. Managers were paid a pittance as severance while the others were paid nothing.
The information is reliable - I am one of those they laid off. They told us all in a company (or lay-off wide) telephone conference. I can't imagine any state that would not force a company to pay earned PTO, but there are many...
100% accurate. Tons of info on the internet (Google search: Nuance Transcriptionist Layoff) even though it just happened yesterday. They aren't even paying some of these MT's the bonuses or PTO that they had earned.
Nuance is one of, if not THE worst companies I have ever heard of in terms of how they treat their employees.

How reliable is this info - I am working on a story about the impact of the attack and more info would be helpful.
