Employment Agreement

Florida

Asked on Nov 3, 2021

Breach of contract?

I’m a nurse practitioner currently employees under a contract in which I was suppose to receive a bonus paid out 30 days after a 12 month period. One week after the 30 days has passed, the Bonus has not been paid. This is consider breach of contract, correct? the contract stipulates I must give 30 days notice prior to quitting. Does this still apply if he is in breach?

Diane D.

Answered Nov 12, 2021

Have you asked about receiving the promised bonus? It may just be late. I would talk to the employer before quitting. And, yes, you must still give the 30 days' notice or you will be in breach. Also, realize, if you quit you may not be entitled to the bonus. I would have to see the contract you signed to actually know what you are entitled to or not.

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

Texas

Asked on Dec 6, 2023

Is background check part of the employment offer?

I recently accepted a job offer and the employer requested that I submit to a background check. However, I am concerned that I may not have been sufficiently informed that this was part of the employment offer. I am wondering if I am obligated to submit to a background check and if it is a requirement of the offer.

J.R. S.

Answered Jan 5, 2024

Potential employers are not explicitly required to disclose that a background check is a necessary condition of employment. In certain circumstances, employers must conduct background checks and keep records of these checks. This is exemplified in the Texas Administrative Code, where an employer must maintain written documentation of a pre-employment check for at least two years regardless of the subsequent employment status of the applicant. You may want to check your offer letter for terms that indicate your employment is contingent upon meeting satisfactory requirements in lieu of specific language of "background check". Depending on the industry and or the company, they may be required to do a background check to verify licensing or education in order to mitigate their risks of negligent hiring.

Dental Associate Contract

Washington

Asked on Jul 17, 2023

Dental associate contract malpractice insurance?

I recently signed a dental associate contract with a practice in my local area. I am concerned about the malpractice insurance that is included in the contract, as I am not sure if the coverage is adequate. I am also unsure of the type of insurance that is provided and what it covers. I would like to know what the risks are in regards to my malpractice insurance and how I can ensure that I am properly protected.

Merry A.

Answered Aug 15, 2023

I am a WA State attorney. For starters, obtain a copy of your policy, print it, and read it carefully, using a yellow highlighter to highlight your questions/concerns, while making notes on a notepad. Check with independent malpractice insurers in WA to determine typical amounts of coverage in your field and county. Consider buying more on your own and/or an umbrella policy. Check with instructors, mentors, and colleagues in your field to seek guidance on adequate coverage.

Physician Employment Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on May 22, 2023

When to use a physician employment agreement?

I am a physician who has been approached by a practice to join their team. I am interested in learning more about the details of the agreement that I will be signing, including when a physician employment agreement should be used. I want to make sure that I am making the best decision for my career and that I am fully informed when signing the agreement.

N'kia N.

Answered May 23, 2023

In North Carolina, written employment agreements between medical groups and the physicians that they employ are standard. A reputable group will almost always present a proposed agreement to a prospective employee without being prompted. Sometimes, the proposed agreement is in the form of an "offer letter" that, once signed, will become the contract between the parties. Before signing any proposed agreement, a prospective employee should ensure that it accurately reflects what the parties have agreed to. It should include all of the agreed-upon terms and should be written clearly enough that an outside third party could interpret what the parties intended without seeking further explanation. Additionally, a prospective employee should pay close attention to contract clauses intended to have long-term effects, including but not limited to "restrictive covenants" such as non-disclosure, non-competition, or exclusivity provisions. Last, a prospective employee might consider having an attorney review a proposed employment agreement before signing. Good luck!
