We Can Help You Draft Your New Employee’s Employment Contract

When you hire a new associate veterinarian or a practice manager, you should consider protecting your practice with an Employment Contract. We can help you protect your rights and ensure that you have a fair employment relationship with your new employee. When you ask for us to draft the employment contract, we use our experience to help you negotiate the best possible terms. We also work with your Employee’s attorney to evaluate and negotiate proposed changes from your employee.

Specifically, we can help draft your employment contract to ensure it protects your practice in the following areas:

  • Hours of Work, and scheduling constraints (how employees can be scheduled, including overtime or holiday pay)
  • Paid Time Off & other employee benefits
  • Defining “For Cause” termination and “No Cause” notice provisions
  • Ensuring non-competition, non-disclosure, and non-solicitation clauses are comprehensive and comply with state laws
  • Defining how the contract renews, and how changes can be made
  • Drafting key provisions on dress code, practice expectations, and other important considerations
