CE: Employment Compliance for Dentists
Presented by: Bent Ericksen & Associates

Since human resource management and compliance with the variety of state and federal labor regulations are not taught in the typical dental school curriculum, doctors often find themselves in court regarding employment issues. Such lawsuits can be emotionally draining and financially devastating. Dealing wisely and effectively with complex employment issues can be particularly challenging and personnel issues are a major source of stress for most practitioners. This can come in various forms such as: employee pay, benefits (vacation, sick, medical, retirement, etc.), leave of absence, pregnancy, hiring, and termination, just to name a few.

During this presentation participants will learn how to:
• Determine their degree of potential exposure and liability.
• Minimize exposure to potentially costly lawsuits and complaints.
• Insure compliance with State and Federal employment regulations.
• Prevent misunderstandings--create a positive and productive work environment.
• Define rights and responsibilities of employer and employees.
• Improve morale and job performance.
• Hire the right people.
• Reduce costly staff turnover.
