Are They Employees or Independent Contractors?
Note: This program was originally available as part of the 2013 Private Practice Institute Online conference.
You have more business than you can handle and you need help. Do you hire an employee or retain the services of an independent contractor? If you choose the latter, you must ensure that the individual qualifies as independent in the eyes of the law. In this session you'll learn what makes a person an independent contractor or an employee, and why it matters. You'll also review essential requirements for written agreements (including restrictive covenants to avoid future competition with your practice), and learn how to draft separation agreements with departing workers to reduce the risk of litigation.
You will be able to:
- draft agreements for services provided by independent contractors and employees
- determine whether a contractor is independent under the law structure enforceable, restrictive covenants to protect your business interests
