Ashline said employees “can get a win for working hard.” She added, “Individually I think we will see some issues with employees who are not happy with having to produce a certain amount of bills per day or claims resolved…I think there´s going to be issues, but I think those were employees that we had issues with before and it showed in our financials.”
