Dentists can use CDA's new Practice Health Check to evaluate employment law compliance this winter

January 11, 2023 1006

Every quarter, CDA publishes a Practice Health Check focusing on a different topic related to the business side of dentistry. Employee meal and rest breaks, leaves of absence, and other employment matters are the focus during the first quarter of 2023. CDA members are invited to take the Q1Practice Health Check consisting of just three questions.

The start of a new year is a wonderful time to review and set goals for improvement. One area where many practices can improve is proper compliance to employment laws.

Each quarter, CDA publishes a Practice Health Check focusing on a different topic related to the business side of dentistry. Compliance with laws on employee meal and rest breaks, leaves of absence and making pay scales available to job applicants and current employees are on the radar during this first quarter of 2023.

CDA members are invited to take the Q1 Practice Health Check consisting of just three questions:

  1. Are you keeping up with meal and rest break compliance?
  2. Do you understand leave of absence laws that pertain to your practice?
  3. Are you prepared to provide and post pay scales? 

For guidance on what meal and rest breaks employees are entitled to, managing employees’ leaves of absence and new employment laws regarding pay scale disclosure, start the Practice Health Check now and follow the links to additional CDA resources to help you comply. 

CDA launched the quarterly Practice Health Check in 2021. Members can review all Practice Health Checks online.
