Employment Contracts

Our Experts Can Guide You Through Employment Contract Process

Upon graduation, new dentists looking for employment in the private sector will encounter a situation with which they are not very well familiar or informed about: They will be asked to sign a contract.

Many new doctors entering the field of dentistry believe a contract may not be necessary or that it only serves to protect the employer. Nothing could be further from the truth. A contract can and should protect the employee as well as the employer. A signed agreement should be in place prior to any commencement of employment. In fact, we at Professional Transition Strategies insist that every physician and doctor should have a signed contract/agreement in place before starting a position. Without one, he or she may have no legal recourse if something goes awry.

The Law Depot explains that an employment contract is what employers and employees use to spell out the rights, responsibilities, and obligations of the parties during the work period. It may include information about compensation (pay/wage), vacation time, the job description and duties, probationary periods, duties of confidentiality, termination procedures, and information about both the employee and employer.

Professional Transition Strategies representatives have the expertise to prepare and execute contracts that will empower both sides and allow a win/win situation to occur. Also, with our Exclusive Partner Program, our associated attorneys are able to untangle even the most difficult contract issues to make a situation that will be acceptable to all parties.
