Lots of resident physicians are getting employment offers, and that includes an employment contract!
Physicians’ offices provide detailed terms about work expectations, requirements, and they lay out the terms for your departure in that agreement.
All too often, newer doctors do not consult lawyers before signing these agreements, and they end up in trouble later — sometimes even legal trouble (or owing a lot of money!).
The cost to review and negotiate, where appropriate, employment agreements is low compared to the cost of litigation or a bad departure.
Reach out to our team now, and we can quickly turn around a review of your contract.
