Have you signed an employment contract? Chances are, buried in the pages of paperwork is a non-compete clause. This little section of text might only be a couple of sentences long, but it’s incredibly important. A bad, poorly written, or otherwise unethical non-compete agreement has the potential to turn that exciting new job into, well…a veterinarian’s worst nightmare for long term career growth!
The last thing you want is to be restricted professionally. Or feel stuck in a position you can’t leave.
On this episode of Working Class on Vet Candy Radio, hosts Eric B Meyer, Esq. a defense attorney and Omar A Lopez, Esq. an plaintiff attorney talk about contracts from the view of the employer and the employee for a fair and balanced discussion about the law. What you can do, what you can't do, and more importantly, what you should do before signing the next one.
