Podcast: Working with Family - Does it Work? by Jennifer O'Brien
Working with Family - Does it Work?
In this 20-minute podcast, consultant Jennifer O'Brien from Karen Zupko & Associates discusses working with family. We're seeing more and more of these types of working arrangements and Ms. O'Brien describes scenarios she has encountered, both successes and disasters. She discusses how to settle on a reasonable wage for a family member, impact of "pillow talk" between a physician and spouse employee, consideration of insurance (and other financial details) when more than one member of a family draws an income from the practice, and legal issues of having one member "report" to another family member.
