Employment Offer

Florida

Asked on Dec 5, 2023

Are employment offer letters standardized?

I recently received an employment offer from a company and I'm wondering if the language in the offer letter is standard or if I should be wary of any particular clauses. I'm eager to accept the offer, but I want to make sure that I'm not agreeing to anything that could later be detrimental to me.

Gill D.

Answered Jan 2, 2024

Offer letters generally have similar language in that they offer you a specific job at a specific price point. However, these letters are not always standardized and you should read the letter carefully to understand what is being offered.

Dental Associate Contract

Florida

Asked on Jun 22, 2023

Dental associate contract working hours?

I am a dental associate who is considering signing a contract with a dental practice. I am interested in understanding the working hours that are outlined in the contract, so that I can make an informed decision about the position. I want to make sure that the working hours are reasonable and that I am fully aware of my obligations before signing the contract.

Diane D.

Answered Jul 14, 2023

Without seeing the contract and without knowing exactly what you are looking for, it is impossible to answer your question.

Employment Contract

Florida

Asked on Feb 23, 2023

Do I have to provide my employees with a paycheck stub?

We find employee pay stubs laying around in the warehouse and left in company vehicles

Diane D.

Answered Mar 21, 2023

Florida doesn't require employers to provide a pay stub with a paycheck, nor do they have to offer them in electronic format. Pay stub legislation in Florida instead defaults to federal laws under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

Physician Employment Agreement

Florida

Asked on Jul 7, 2023

Are physician employment agreements required?

I am a physician who is considering a new job opportunity. I have been presented with an employment agreement, but I am unsure if I am legally obligated to sign it. I am looking for guidance on the legality of physician employment agreements and whether or not I am required to sign one.

Daniel D.

Answered Jul 18, 2023

Physician employment agreements are not required by Law but that does not mean they are not required by the Employer. Employers have these agreements in place to set the terms of the employment regarding salary, length of employment and any other relevant terms that they want the employee to agree to. But, that also means you as the employee could negotiate provisions into the agreement that you want if the employer is willing to put them in. You legally don't have to sign one, but your future employer can still require a signed agreement. Before you sign anything you should make sure you understand the terms and provisions of the agreement.

Employment Offer

Florida

Asked on Dec 8, 2023

Does the employment offer mention promotions?

I was recently offered a job and I am interested in understanding what the terms of the agreement are regarding promotions. I have been in the same job for several years and I am looking for something with more potential for advancement. Although the job offer does not explicitly mention promotions, I am hoping to get more information about the company's policy regarding career growth.

Gill D.

Answered Jan 2, 2024

Employment offers can contain information about promotions, but they typically do not. Jobs and employers and situations change over time and employers don't want to get stuck agreeing to a promotion before working with you.
