Physician Employment Agreement


Asked on Jul 11, 2023

Physician employment agreement non-solicitation clauses?

I am a physician who is currently in the process of negotiating an employment agreement with a hospital. I am concerned about the non-solicitation clause in the agreement, as I do not want to be restricted from building relationships with my patients should I choose to leave the hospital in the future. I am looking for guidance on how to structure this clause to ensure that I am able to maintain my professional relationships with patients.

Non-Competes in Connecticut for physicians are limited to 15 miles and one year. In addition, a non-compete agreement is not enforceable if the employment relationship is terminated by the employer without cause, or the agreement is not made in anticipation of, or as part of, a partnership or ownership agreement. Aks your prospective employer if they are aware of Connecticut law, and in particular Conn. Gen Stat. § 20-14p.
