Understanding Employer Contracts

When the opportunity to achieve a lifelong dream of being able to live and work in the United States or GCC is within reach, nurse candidates often sign employer or job offer contracts without understanding the documents they are signing and their binding terms. Later, you may realize that you have committed to something that is far different than your initial understanding of the opportunity presented to you.

It is critical to evaluate the entirety of an employment contract before signing on the dotted line. WorldWide HealthStaff Solutions is here to help demystify your most common questions about healthcare employer contracts, including:

  • Is my contract enforceable?
  • Can a signed contract be terminated?
  • What is breach of contract?
  • What are my legal rights?

Understanding your rights related to employer or job offer contracts before and after they are signed is essential to your successful future.


These frequently asked questions and answers have been prepared to assist healthcare workers outside of the United States who may be considering (or who may have already signed) a contract for work in the USA or GCC.

Deciding how to handle contract issues can be very difficult. The questions and answers above have been prepared to assist you as you think about these important issues. The discussion above is not legal advice. If you are ever uncertain about your path forward, you should always consider seeing legal advice in your home country.
