Therefore, you should not take the risk of entering into an employment contract without obtaining contract review services. Complex terms in your contract could lead to unpleasant results.

What to Consider in an Employment Contract

A physician employment contract must be signed with complete confidence that it is effectively communicating the expectations and desires of the position. Many things must be reviewed, specifically call schedules, paid time off, benefits and starting salary. There are so many factors that need to be considered and they can be so full of complexities that a review becomes vitally important.

Contract Review Services Put Concerns to Rest

When receiving contract review services, you will find that the concerns you had about the contract’s terms are put to rest. A review will help identify the areas that need to be improved in wording and agreements. Important points that need to be negotiated will be taken up with speed and care. An Indiana physician should always get an employment contract review before entering into a contractual agreement.  With a contract review, you will have any contractual pitfalls found and fixed. You will receive the following:

  • Consulting with a term-by-term review of the contract
  • A full employment contract review
  • Negotiation of any points with the employer
  • Financial review using MGMA data

Having all the stress taken out of the process of entering into a contract will allow you to relax and concentrate on those things that are important to you, namely your patients.

Common Problems when no Review Takes Place

The risks are great when no review takes place with an employment contract prior to signing. The impact of an undesirable contract agreement can affect both professional and personal life. There are a number of complex issues which need to be reviewed. An Indiana physician should take no chances with these things. Some of the contract issues to review are:

  • Too small production bonuses
  • Unfavorable call schedules
  • Poor benefits package
  • Unfair non-competes
  • Not enough vacation time or paid time off
  • Inadequate liability coverage
  • Potential Indiana Medical Board issues

The financial benefits of a contract review will outweigh the cost.
