"[Avoid agreeing to] a situation where they can fire you at any ti me — especia l ly i mporta nt i f you relocated or have a family," advises Chamberlin. "For a brand- new employee, it's good to have protection in place, such as that they can't fire without cause for 90 days. After the 90-day mark, get additional protection in place, such as 180 days of notice going forward. That gives both parties adequate time to make new arrangements." Post ‑ termination considerations Issues related to your employment could arise long after you've packed up your things and settled into a new situation. Planning for them in your contract is another integral step toward safeguarding yourself. You'll probably build up a base of familiar patients who routinely seek your services. Your contract should address the proper means of notification of your departure. In other words, who w ill tell your patients of your impending departure? Typically, the employer will distribute a letter before you are free to discuss it openly. Your contract may seek to limit your interactions with patients through a non-solicitation clause. This prevents you from recruiting patients to join you at your new location. If such a clause exists, ask for a clear definition of solicitation. Getting this in writing will help you know what you can and cannot say to your patients, as well as the guidelines to follow. A non-solicitation clause may also try to prohibit you from treating patients who choose to follow you to your new location. Most experts agree that enforcement of this is questionable; courts often support the patient's right to seek any doctor of their choosing. Check with your local legal expert if such language is included. Another post-termination issue might be a non-disparagement clause, which prevents you from making negative or defamatory comments about your employer
