Written contracts protect both sides from misunderstandings and can put your relationship on equal ground. Whether you are joining a practice as an associate, intending to pursue a sale/purchase, or you are hiring someone, a contract helps you start your relationship on the right foot.
When it’s time to sign the employment agreement for your first job out of dental school will you be ready? ADA Senior Associate General Counsel Jeffrey Fraum speaks to UIC dental students about considerations when you negotiate your first employment contract.
Congratulations! You’ve finished dental school, you’ve received an offer to join a practice, the package looks right, and you’re ready to sign the employment contract.
Before you sign an employee contract, make sure you understand the terms and conditions of that contract.
You got the interview, nailed it, and are in love with the practice. But, something’s wrong. The offer they just handed you isn’t what you were expecting. Do you take it as is, or turn it down because it differs from what you had anticipated? Every job seeker needs a plan for negotiating employment agreements.
