Common Employment Law Issues for Dentists
As a dentist, you are a highly skilled professional dedicated to providing exceptional patient care. However, you are not immune to the employment law issues that can affect any workplace. At Yormak Employment & Disability Law, we understand dentists’ unique challenges and are committed to providing the expert legal representation you need to address these issues effectively.
Below are some of the most common employment law issues dentists face.
Discrimination or Harassment
The workplace should be a safe and respectful environment for everyone. Unfortunately, discrimination and harassment can occur, even in professional settings like dental practices. Whether you’re facing discrimination based on race, gender, age, disability, or any other protected characteristic, or you’re a victim of sexual harassment or bullying, we are here to help. We are committed to aggressively advocating for your rights and ensuring that you are treated fairly and respectfully at work.
Employment Contract Review and Negotiation
As a dentist, your employment contract is a critical document that outlines your rights, responsibilities, and compensation. Understanding every aspect of your contract before you sign it is essential. We can review your contract, explain the terms in plain language, and negotiate on your behalf to ensure that your interests are protected.
Employment Contract Breaches and Enforcement
If your employer has breached your employment contract, whether by failing to pay you the agreed-upon salary, not honoring your agreed-upon work hours, or any other violation, we can help you take legal action to enforce the terms of your contract. We are committed to ensuring that your rights are respected and that you receive the compensation and benefits you are entitled to.
Family and Medical Leave
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides certain employees with up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave per year. It also requires that their group health benefits be maintained during the leave. If you are denied this right or face retaliation for taking leave, we can help you stand up for your rights and take the necessary legal action.
Wage disputes can arise in many forms, from unpaid overtime to unequal pay. As a dentist, you deserve to be paid fairly for your work. If you believe that your employer is not complying with wage and hour laws, we can help you understand your rights and take action to recover the compensation you are owed.
If you believe you have been wrongfully terminated, whether due to discrimination, retaliation, or a breach of contract, we can help. We will thoroughly investigate your case, gather evidence, and advocate for your rights, helping you seek justice and compensation for your loss.
Whistleblower Representation for Dentists
In the healthcare industry, dentists, like other professionals, may come across unethical or illegal practices that could harm patients or violate federal laws. If you have discovered such misconduct within your dental practice and are considering reporting it, you may be concerned about potential retaliation from your employer. At Yormak Employment & Disability Law, we understand these fears and are here to support and protect you.
Whistleblower laws are in place to protect employees who report illegal activities from retaliation. These protections apply to dentists who blow the whistle on fraudulent billing practices, substandard patient care, violations of patient privacy, and other forms of misconduct. However, navigating these laws can be complex, and without proper legal representation, whistleblowers may find themselves facing unjust consequences.
Our lead attorney, Benjamin Yormak, is an expert in employment law and has a proven track record of defending the rights of whistleblowers. He is committed to ensuring that you can report misconduct without fear of retaliation. We will guide you through the process, providing advice and representation every step of the way, from making the initial report to handling any fallout that may occur.
