I am a healthcare attorney with a national practice focused on physician employment agreements. My wife is a physician and I understand the position physicians searching for employment may find themselves in (i.e. having been trained in the practice of medicine, but not learning the busines of medicine). I am happy to answer your questions free of charge. Please feel free to post your qustions here, or send them to me via e-mail at rjholloman@hollomanlawgroup.com.

Hi,
I am an Internist and had accepted a hospitalist position to start by Mid Nov to Mid Dec. Since accepting the offer, my husband's company closed his place of work and moved him to a different city. Since we have a 7 year old daughter who is going through changing school in a new city I felt I am under too much pressure to go through the job change and decided to pull out. Initially once they came to know the circumstances they agreed to let me to and later they called me to show i have to give them a 90 day notice when i have not even started with them yet and i have another 40 days even to start with them. Is there any reason I should worry about pulling out? I read through the whole contract and in the contract they had stated the term of the agreement will commence on Nov 16-Dec 16, 2009. Please advise.

What is the effective date of the contract? Did you receive any compensation for signing the contract?
