VIN Foundation | Supporting veterinarians to cultivate a healthy animal community | Resources | Model Employment Contract | Customized Veterinarian Contract

You went to veterinary school to practice medicine, not to read, write, or decipher contracts. Yet, a balanced contract can be as critical to a healthy working relationship as a balanced diet is to a healthy patient.

 

Negotiating with your new employer or employee should NOT be an adversarial experience. Working through this contract together has proven to be a positive experience for thousands of employers and employees, with the end-product being an employment agreement that all parties understand and feel good about.
