Employment Practices

Laws & regulations, hiring/firing, office policies & manuals and performance.

It can be challenging to balance the roles of healthcare provider and employer, but it doesn't have to be. Find resources to help hire your dream team and keep your staff productive and happy. Get advice on how to write job descriptions, create applications, set office policies, establish alternative work schedules, and terminate an employee. In addition, all of this is supported by an Employee Manual that can be customized to your practice.

Face Covering Exemption Medical Certification Form

Employers should develop a policy to accommodate any worker who meets one of the exemptions from wearing a face mask. If a worker is unable to wear a mask due to a medical condition, they should be provided with a non-restrictive alternative, such as a face shield with a drape attached to the bottom edge, for example. Employers may provide this form to an employee to obtain medical certification from their health care provider supporting their request for an accommodation.

Interns and Volunteers

Employers should proceed with caution when using unpaid interns or volunteers. Most interns are considered employees in the eyes of the law, which means you must comply with wage and hour laws, including paying them at least minimum wage.

Minimum Wage and Paid Sick Leave Ordinances by City/County

Individual cities and counties across California have passed local ordinances relating to minimum wage and sick leave laws — with eligibility rules varying from city to city. Check with local city government as to whether any local minimum wage ordinances may apply to employees in your practice. Periodically check local websites as rates in these cities could change at any time.
