Advancing the Financial Interests of Healthcare Providers

Our Atlanta healthcare law firm represents healthcare providers in various business areas, including employment law issues. We counsel healthcare providers about employment practices and issues for the purpose of helping them ensure fairness and legally compliant treatment of personnel, which minimizes their risks of employment-related litigation expense or liability. For example, our firm regularly advises employers with regard to how they use background screening to qualify job applicants. Background checks can implicate issues under federal anti-discrimination laws and state credit protection laws that establish legal parameters for such screenings. Every employer should consult with a qualified attorney to carefully review background screening policies and practices to ensure legal risks associated with background checks are limited and monitored.

We often represent healthcare employers and professionals concerning restrictive covenants. Our firm has experience reviewing and preparing non-compete agreements, non-solicitation agreements, non-disclosure agreements and confidentiality agreements to ensure the agreements are within the parameters of the law. The law in Georgia was recently dramatically changed concerning non-compete agreements, and all non-compete agreements should be reviewed by an experienced attorney to determine what changes need to be made to existing agreements in light of changes in Georgia law.
