Fox Rothschild LLP invites you to join us for a free webinar

The old adage "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" rings true for physicians and their employment contracts. It is critical to fully understand the terms of your agreement before you sign – otherwise, you may face a number of challenges, both legal and otherwise, in trying to extricate yourself from a contract you later deem to be unfavorable or to contain onerous terms.

Join us for this complimentary one-hour webinar that will highlight important considerations to keep in mind as well as terms to carefully review and scrutinize in contracts with potential employers. Fully appreciating the terminology and provisions in employment agreements may give you just the leverage you need to negotiate a contract that will be favorable to you -- today and in the years to come as you practice medicine.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Employment Contract Terminology and Terms
  • Termination Provisions
  • Compensation: Base Salary and Bonus Arrangements
  • Malpractice Insurance
  • Retirement Plans
  • Benefits (Including Insurance, Reimbursements and Other Business Expenses)
  • Location and Work Assignments
  • Restrictive Covenants
  • Co-Ownership
