mednut83 Posted May 25, 2012 Share Posted May 25, 2012 This is an offer from a smaller company. I don't know if this is a bargaining tactic from them or if I should be considerate. I have only just viewed (and tried to figure out the legal lingo) of the contract offer that I asked them to email me and have not called them to discuss yet. The office staff is SUPER nice and I like the environment and we are looking into a buying a house that would be really close to the office. But I could use any advice on how to deal with negotiating or bringing up a non-competetive contract. Its a 2 year contract at $75000. Nothing in the contract about productive bonuses, etc. No call, no weekends, and although I am not absolute about the hours, I am pretty sure it will be under 40, but considered full time. 3 weeks vacation, but it does not roll over. They are covering mal-practice. I am staying on the health insurance on my husbands policy so they are not providing that. NO CME reimbursement. 'They will reinburse me only for such reasonable expenses that is pre-approved in writing, and which are incurred on Employer business. Expenses relating to continuing education and physician license renewal shall be borne by Employee unless otherwise agreed by Employer.'<o:p></o:p><o:p> I am confused about this section: </o:p>B. Employee acknowledges that, during Employee’s first year of employment with Employer, Employer shall incur and expend substantial time and expenses training Employee for which Employer will not begin to be reimbursed unless and until Employee has worked for Employer for at least 18 months. Accordingly, Employee agrees that Employee shall incur a reimbursement obligation to Employer of $1,500 per month for the first six months of employment with Employer, and $1,000 per month for the second six months of such employment (the “Reimbursement Obligation”). The Reimbursement obligation shall be due from Employee to Employer on the thirtieth (30th) day following the termination of Employee’s employment with Employer. The Reimbursement Obligation will be reduced by $1,000 per month for every full month beyond Employee’s first 18 months with Employer, and no Reimbursement Obligation will be due, and the Reimbursement Obligation will be forgiven in its entirety, if Employee works for Employer at least 24 months or if Employer terminates Employee’s employment without cause (as hereinafter defined) during the initial 24 months of employment. Any suggestions, etc would be GREATLY appreciated before I call the office manager to discuss as this is my first contract that I am dealing with. Thanks to all that are willing to put their two cents in. :) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
