New in the VSPN Library
Many practice managers are responsible for overseeing contracts for the veterinarians that are hired at their clinics. We are pleased to be able to add the Model Employment Contract from the VIN Foundation to the VSPN Library. This model contract is not meant to replace the advice of a licensed attorney, but rather provide a starting place in putting together a veterinary employment contract.
