NLRB settlement paves way for Sanford Health physicians to discuss compensation

The National Labor Relations Board and Sioux Falls, S.D.-based Sanford Health reached a settlement agreement permitting physicians to share the terms of their employment contracts with one another, according to The Dickinson Press.

The settlement comes after a physician from Sanford's Bismarck, N.D., branch filed a complaint in March about the health system's restrictive contract terms that did not permit them to discuss compensation with fellow employees, according to the report.

"How our physicians are compensated is an important discussion," Craig Lambrecht, MD, Sanford Bismarck executive vice president said in a statement acquired by The Dickinson Press. "We're working with the National Labor Relations Board to find a solution that supports open dialogue while protecting confidential information. We will, of course, work with the NLRB as we move forward with the appropriate changes."
