Labor and Employment
We counsel clients in their role as employers, dealing with all of the regulatory and common law issues that arise in the workplace, including leave policies, progressive discipline policy design and implementation, and litigation avoidance. We prepare and present emergency medical petitions for court approval, provide advice to hospital administration and staff members concerning HIPAA compliance, DNR orders, AIDS testing, guardianship and similar legal and medical issues.
We regularly provide advice regarding bylaws and related corporate documents for healthcare institutions and have drafted medical staff guidelines, rules and regulations, bylaws and similar hospital policies. Our extensive experience in representing hospitals, as well as physicians and allied health professionals, gives us unique experience in terms of institutional issues, including hospital/medical staff relationships, physician group structure, personnel, and insurance coverage and risk management issues.
