Description

More and more physicians and other healthcare practitioners are entering into employment agreements with their employers, whether hospitals, clinics, or private practices. When drafting employment agreements, counsel should pay attention to restrictive covenants and termination provisions, among other key terms.

Further, healthcare providers must fully comply with relevant laws and anticipate potential areas of dispute, including concerns under the Stark Law. Additionally, counsel must consider board certification, credentialing, and privileging when structuring the agreement, as they can impact the salary and timing of the contract.

Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare attorneys examines the essential aspects, clauses, and terms common to healthcare employment agreements. The panel will address noncompete provisions, compliance considerations, and payment issues. The panel will offer best practices for structuring healthcare employment agreements.
