So, I was working with one group to negotiate a higher salary and coverage for moving expenses. The group returned the contract to me with the following changes (see below). Is this even legal to impose on an employee? Absences. The doctor shall schedule her absences no less than sixty (60) days in advance with the Group, with the understanding that will take no more than (4) weeks (20) business days) of absence per consecutive twelve (12) month period, which physician may use for vacation, sick or disability leave, continuing medical education, or for other personal purposes. If the doctor takes more than the allotted vacation and leave time then she will reimburse the Group in the amount of $1300.00 per day in excess of the allotted vacation and leave time. She will not be reimbursed if she chooses to use less than the 20 days of paid vacation and leave time. The 20 day allotment expires at the end of the consecutive twelve (12) month period and is not carried over to any following year. Unexpected absences due to illness, bereavement, family emergencies, acts of God, war and so forth may be considered as special circumstances by the Group and may be deliberated and adjusted by vote of a simple majority of the Partners of the Group on a case by case basis. They also deleted the clause which states that I am eligible for Family Medical Leave. Would you sign this contract? Thank you!
