Chiropractor Employment Agreement
As an employer who processes the agreement, it is considered a good corporate protocol to protect oneself before the relationship develops. In my office, the new employee signs the agreement on the first day. Many chiropractors hire collaborators with the highest degree of goodwill; the partner starts the relationship with equally good intentions. Theoretically, the practice will develop and the employee will cultivate a patient who follows in this practice and who has goodwill. This relationship can thrive for a long time without incident. All contracts must include the basic financial transaction; Alliance, do not compete; the transfer of receivables; prepaid expenses; leasing; creditors; staff; and the transitional agreement. The treaty should be simple and easy to read. Each theme should be presented independently of each other for added clarity. The most important thing is that the chiropractor understands all the problems.
The time spent with your counsel should be to inform you of the legality of the sale, not the chiropractor who informs the lawyer about the mechanics of the practice. The purpose of this article is not to inform chiropractors of the content of these contracts, but to assess why, when and how these documents are created and used. Good business judgment is presented in this article. Perhaps chiropractors can eliminate costly mistakes by reading this article. When chiropractors sell their practice, sellers are traditionally responsible for the origin of a sales contract. Most chiropractors contact their lawyer and accountant and ask them to start the trial. My question, what does your lawyer or accountant know about your chiropractic practice?

Author`s Note: I advise, advise, advise and have contracts for the chiropractor profession. My expertise lies in all aspects of chiropractic buy/sell transactions and is based on experience. I have a B.S.
in Marketing/Finance from Boston University and was a stockbroker before becoming a chiropractor 14 years ago. Over the past ten years, I have closed the buy/sell transaction many times and worked on many legal and financial hurdlees to close a deal. I also have a real estate license in the state of New Jersey. My experience tells me that if two chiropractors negotiate, they should negotiate face-to-face without the presence of experts. Professionals should work in the background to inform sellers and buyers about each topic if necessary. The reality is that chiropractors need to work together and discuss all the problems to solve them. If this negotiation process is used, compromises and conclusions will be reached with less effort, stress and professional costs. On the other hand, if you go to a trial with a lawyer on one side and an accountant on the other, you are looking for a long, long, expensive meeting that could be counterproductive.
If a pre-employment contract was concluded with an established non-competition clause, the chiropractic owner would be protected. Other areas of concern under such a contract are compensation; termination; behaviour; insurance; liability; and accountability. Why will a chiropractor know the contracts? Chiropractors have gone through years of university training and have never needed to create a contract….
