Physician Employment Agreements: Problem Areas that can be Landmines...

Formal written contracts establish the legal relationship between the parties; they state the terms and conditions of that relationship and the rights and obligations of each party. They confirm the intentions and relationships of the parties as they enter into this relationship, and they eliminate uncertainties regarding mutual rights, obligations, and relationships. If everything remained as it is at the time the agreement is signed, there would be little need for formal documents. However, the agreement serves to protect against future disputes. Therefore, it should include as precise language as possible. Ambiguous terms in agreements are of little effect when disputes occur over the meaning of a party's rights or obligations.  

This webinar by healthcare attorney, William Mack Copeland, will review the elements of the physician employment agreement that can cause the greatest problems, focusing on the pitfalls and the complications that can develop when the parties do not fully understand what is being agreed to. Such items as corporate practice, term and termination, termination for cause, duties of the physician, call, non-compete clauses, and compensation are all items that should be clearly set out in the agreement and fully understood by the parties.
