Legal support to help tackle the challenges of managing your practice

The scenario

Sam is the practice manager for a Sydney practice with 15 doctors and five support staff. Their workdays are filled with hiring staff, managing payroll, resolving any staff disputes, and managing suppliers. They are the go-to person for all day to-day issues in the practice.

The challenge

The long-term full-time receptionist for Sam’s practice is retiring and their boss, Catherine, will require them to hire several casual receptionists to fill the vacancy. Sam will need to run the recruiting process, organise their employment contracts and make sure the new staff are trained and onboarded effectively.
