mgriffiths Posted October 23, 2018 Share Posted October 23, 2018 So I am in the process (in reality it is now concluded) of accepting a new job. Same day as the interview they offered me the job providing a term sheet which showed the highlights of the salary, benefits, malpractice, non-compete etc. After talking back and forth regarding simplifying the income (getting rid of loan repayment, commencement bonus, etc.) and PTO I verbally accepted the position and waited for the contract to be sent. I spent some time reading, and re-reading the contract and am very glad I did. The non-compete changed from the terms sheet to the contract and not in a good way. Term Sheet: non-compete 2 years within 37 miles from main hospital campus (I'll be working in a satellite family practice office about 15-20 miles from main hospital campus) Contract: non-compete 2 years within 37 miles from main hospital campus AND satellite office - effectively increasing the radius by 15-20 miles In all honesty the non-compete is likely far too restrictive and therefore not enforceable in my state even without the change, but I mentioned to them the discrepancy between term sheet and contract. They immediately apologized giving a valid reason for the change and fixed the problem. So, I have posted a thread previously telling people to READ THEIR CONTRACTS, but it is also possible to negotiate (within reason) and point out discrepancies!
