Signing an employment contract can be stressful for any recent graduate starting a new job. To help new dentists understand the legal terms and conditions typically seen in one of these contracts, the Center for Professional Success provides a free publication for members titled “Dentist Employment Agreements: A Guide to Key Legal Provisions.”
This material is no substitute for retaining your own attorney, but it will assist you in knowing what questions to ask your legal advisor before signing any contract. Other topics in the book include the difference between a non-compete clause and non-solicitation clause, things to consider when hiring a lawyer to review an employment agreement and the finer points of mediation and arbitration.
