Non Compete Agreement Chiropractor
Limit your practical ability, as a solo contractor or employee of another chiropractor, to distances generally 10 miles to 20 miles from the employer`s place of business, for periods that typically last one to two years. Be careful, if your employer owns multiple sites, this will probably apply to all of them, which would extend the scope of the clause to a much greater distance. Imagine a scenario in which you signed a contract with an employer who had six offices in your hometown. They would effectively be prevented from working anywhere in the city and probably in the suburbs. It`s a scary prospect for someone who might have built a life and a home somewhere, unless you have the funds in reserve to “end it.” Keep in mind, however, that different governments and municipalities do not want to compete with Confederation in any other way. Some of them maintain them almost in a standard procedure, while others have adopted legislation that restricts their applicability. It may be worth your time and money to consider how a contract you get is reviewed by local courts when the time comes. Apart from the Confederation not to face competition, many contracts also contain a non-invitation clause. This means that if the job is to be terminated for any reason, you agree that you do not contact the employer`s clients directly for a specified period of time. Note that this means that, although you may be able to practice several miles away, you will still not be allowed to contact your former patients to inform them of your new location. Why sign one first? The short answer to this question is probably because you have no choice if you are trying to work for someone else.
While at first glance this seems to be a terribly harsh reality, we must study why they exist. Establishing a chiropractic practice and further developing a patient base ensuring their long-term success are both costly and risky for the busy chiropractor. Chiropractic is a very personal profession… a relationship where the relationship between chiropractors and the patient is much more important, often more important than training places and amenities.
