Lauren and I have written several articles about doctors and non-compete contracts. (Type in “doctor noncompetes” in the search box in the upper left-hand corner of this page to be directed to those posts. We have also written an article which summarizes the various decisions by Virginia courts which can be found on our firm web site.)

We want to share with our readers a recent article from Medscape Today titled, “Avoid the Hidden Dangers of Noncompete Clauses.” This is another great discussion of the pitfalls for doctors (young and old) signing an employment agreement which contains a non-compete provision.

Hey doctors, you are smart professional men and women, make sure you know what you are getting into BEFORE you sign your next employment agreement.
