Thank you so much!
Just to clarify, did you mean by the following that, the employer cannot prevent me from practicing even next door" after termination?
Also, what's the typical period of notice for termination? 60 days or 90 days?
"Business and Professions Code 16600, especially applies to the provision prevents you from practicing dentistry within any radius of the corporation's dental office after termination of your agreement.
So I should feel comfortable signing the contract even with those non-compete clauses in?
"There's no typical period of notice for termination, since most employees are at-will and can be terminated at any time for any reason with or without any prior notice."
Does the above apply to independent contractors too? Ie, if I decide to quit, what remedies do they have? What would I lose in court?
7.01 Term: the term of this agreement shall continue for 12 months unless terminated by either party.
7.02 Termination by Provider: IN the event Provider elects to terminate this Agreement, Provider shall give Corporation at least ninety (90) days written notice of Provider's intent to terminate. Provider acknowledges that the (90) days would allow the Corporation an opportunity to obtain a replacement for Provider, so as to allow for a smooth transition of patient care on a continuing basis.
7.03 Termination by Corporation: It is agreed that Corporation may terminate this agreement by delivery of written notice to Provider upon 60 days written notice.
I think 90 days is too long, and asked for fairness that both be 60 days, but the manager did not agree.
I did not see any liquidated damages provision at all. Should I include one?
