Labor board: Sanford must allow doctors to disclose pay if desired

BISMARCK -- Sanford Health has reached a settlement with the National Labor Relations Board allowing its physicians to discuss terms of their contracts with colleagues.

BISMARCK -- Sanford Health has reached a settlement with the National Labor Relations Board allowing its physicians to discuss terms of their contracts with colleagues.

The settlement requires Sanford to alter its employment contracts to allow doctors to discuss their compensation, at work or outside work.

The agreement followed a complaint filed in March by an undisclosed Sanford doctor in Bismarck. Some of Sanford’s employees were required to sign the restrictive contracts. The complaining physician’s name was kept confidential by the labor relations board.

“How our physicians are compensated is an important discussion,” Dr. Craig Lambert, Sanford Bismarck executive vice president said in a statement issued Thursday, June 23. “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.”
