Recently I was told that dr x had the anesthesia contract at a hospital. This Dr X has been the main anesthesiologist there for more than a decade. This group has a constant turnover of anesthesia providers and the anesthesia providers working for him have been unhappy with workload, pay disclosures and opaque revenue collection and distribution. Anesthesiologists who have worked there for a long time went to the CEO of the hospital and complained about not being made full partners. They finally quit. Any way fresh graduates were recruited and soon they leave. But now I hear that Dr X has been withholding 3-6 months of their pay and not paying them for 3-6 months of work? Is this legal? In fact 3 anesthesiologists have made similar complaints? Is there any protection from this kind of fraud?
