This webinar will provide you with an understanding of what should and what should not be in a physician employment agreement

Overview It is important that the parties entering into a physician employment agreement understand the complexities of the agreement, the contract negotiation process, and contract negotiation strategies. Too often, it requires negotiation skills training, since the agreement leaves out important issues that are raised later in the term, much to the detriment of one of the parties.

Why Should You Attend 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.
