Most employment contracts will have a separate section that involves a restrictive covenant. As part of this, an employer will specify how many miles within the radius you can or cannot practice, without their written permission. One wrinkle that many practitioners often ignore is that the restrictions might involve many or all of the practices owned by the entity in which they are working for. This could be also a large geographical area involving facilities that they have also never even worked at. It’s very important to negotiate these terms prior to signing any employment contract. I strongly recommend that you have an experienced health lawyer review the contract with you, prior to signing it.
