Dentists and “Wrongful Discharge” – What a Headache!

One in Four Dentists Suffers from Ex-Employee Headaches

In this survey, we asked dentists if they have had “wrongful discharge” headaches from past employees. The majority (72%) have not had such trouble. However, 9% of dentists report being sued for wrongful discharge, and another 19% say they’ve been accused of it.

We asked dentists, “Have you had negative experience with letting employees go?Wrongful Discharge: Dental Survey Results

  • “I have had to continue to pay unemployment to two former employees who hop from job to job.” (California periodontist)
  • “One time I let a hygienist go and she took a large number of patients to another dentist’s office and started working a few hours a week and collected all the unemployment she could.” (Michigan dentist)
  • “My God, who hasn’t had problems with former employees??!! Never sued, but a heck of a lot of drama.” (Illinois dentist)
  • “Yes, we have an employee who successfully sued a former employer, and she is always alluding to that fact.” (Pediatric dentist)
  • I went through the employee standards protocol for what is required and covered myself. It is a bit of work but much easier and less costly than going through the courts.” (Canada dentist)
