When working in private practice, whether operating alone or in a group, you are legally obliged to reduce the inherent risks relating to staff you may engage as self-employed, employees or workers.
For valuable information on this and other employment issues contact our employment advisory service, an exclusive service only for BMA members.
Our advice covers:
- contracts of employment: drafting, changing, transferring in/out of your business
- contracts for services: terms and conditions, essential clauses and correspondence
- performance management
- grievance and disciplinary issues
- absence management
- appraising staff
- discrimination issues
- HR policies and practice
- employment tribunals (subject to terms and conditions).
To contact the employment advisory service, call us on 0300 123 1233 and tell the adviser you have a private practice query.
If you would like more information - including sample policies and procedures, and guidance from our specialist advisors - this is available in the Employer Handbook.
