A medical transportation business and its managers were cited $460,945 after an investigation by the Massachusetts Attorney General’s office found 141 workers were misclassified as independent contractors and didn’t receive overtime pay.

The now-defunct company, Quantum Transportation LLC was based in Watertown, Mass. It shut down in 2016, according to the Attorney General’s office. Quantum provided transportation for MassHealth clients and workers.
