Common Employment Law Issues for Dental Hygienists
Dental hygienists are an integral part of the dental practice, often serving as the first line of patient care. However, many hygienists face a range of employment law issues that can affect their working conditions, job security, and overall well-being.
At Yormak Employment & Disability Law, we understand the unique challenges that dental hygienists face. As a dental hygienist, you may encounter various employment law issues, such as:
Discrimination or Harassment
Dental hygienists have the right to work in an environment free from discrimination and harassment. Unfortunately, some employers or fellow employees may not respect this right. Whether it’s due to your race, gender, age, disability, or any other protected characteristic, discrimination and harassment are against the law. If you believe you’ve been a victim of workplace discrimination or harassment, our employment lawyer can help you seek justice.
Employment Contract Review and Negotiation
Dental hygienists are often presented with an employment contract when starting a new job. This agreement outlines the terms of your employment, including your pay, hours worked, benefits, and duties. It’s essential to have an experienced employment lawyer review this contract before you sign it to ensure it’s in your best interest. We can also help you negotiate better terms if necessary.
Employment Contract Breaches and Enforcement
Sometimes, employers may not honor the terms of the employment contract. This could involve failing to pay the agreed-upon compensation, not providing the promised benefits, or changing your working conditions without your consent. If your employer has breached your employment contract, we can help you enforce your rights and seek the remedies you deserve.
Family and Medical Leave
Under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), eligible employees are entitled to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons. However, some employers may deny this right or retaliate against employees who exercise it. If you’ve been denied FMLA leave or faced retaliation for taking it, our employment lawyer can help you protect your rights.
Dental hygienists should receive fair compensation for all hours worked, including overtime. However, some employers may violate the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and other labor laws by failing to pay the proper wages. If you’re involved in a wage dispute with your employer, we can help you recover the compensation you’re entitled to.
Employers cannot fire employees for unlawful reasons, such as discrimination, retaliation, or whistleblowing. If you believe you’ve been wrongfully terminated, our employment lawyer can help you seek justice and compensation for your losses.
Whistleblower Representation for Dental Hygienists
As a dental hygienist, you are often the first line of defense when it comes to patient care and safety. If you become aware of unethical or illegal practices within your dental practice, such as substance abuse, healthcare law violations, or fraudulent billing, you may feel a duty to report these issues. This is known as whistleblowing, and it’s a brave and necessary act to protect patients and uphold the integrity of the dentistry profession.
However, whistleblowing can also put your job and career at risk. Some employers may retaliate against whistleblowers by demoting them, reducing their hours, denying them benefits, or even terminating their employment. This is not only unfair, but it’s also against the law.
At Yormak Employment & Disability Law, we understand the courage it takes to stand up for what’s right, and we’re here to stand up for you. Our employment lawyer, Benjamin Yormak, is a board-certified specialist in employment law with extensive experience in whistleblower cases. He can guide you through the process of reporting your concerns, protect your rights under the law, and fight back against any retaliation you may face.
