names = Tet-Content D:\textfiles\listofusers.txt
foreach ($name in $names)
{
$name | remove-QADGroupMember 'CN=group,OU=ou,DC=dc,DC=com' -member $name
}

The get-qadmemberof is to get a list of members in a group so shouldn't be needed if you are working from a list (c:\textfiles\listofusers.txt) that you already know are members of the group

In its simplist form you would use.....

Get-Content C:\textfiles\listofusers.txt | remove-QADUser "GroupName"

@Neilsr: is "remove-QADUser" something new?  I am only aware of these options for QADUser:

 Get-QADUser           Retrieve users that match specific conditions
 Set-QADUser           Modify attributes of a user account
 New-QADUser           Create a new user account
 Enable-QADUser        Enable a user account
 Disable-QADUser       Disable a user account
 Unlock-QADUser        Unlock a user account
 Deprovision-QADUser   Deprovision a user account in AD

I have seen this one to remove all but the primary group from a user:

Get-QADUser $_.EmpID | Remove-QADMemberOf -RemoveAll


EDIT:  Just thought about this reply some more and got to thinking.  I was not attempting to be difficult here.  I was simply asking to see if it was something I wasn't aware of thereby providing me with another learning opportunity.

Sorry was answering two questions. Your correct in that it's not qaduser, it should have read.

Get-Content C:\textfiles\listofusers.txt | remove-QADGroupmember "groupname"
