So, you are employed as a massage therapist or have massage therapist employees. What happens to the clients when an employee leaves? How is it handled? What do we tell our clients? Delve into the ethical dilemmas surrounding clients when working in an employed position as a massage therapist and transitioning to a new place of employment or self-employment.

Through this program you will:

  • Understand expectations of the employer so that employees acquire and attain repeat clientele as part of their hired requirements.
  • Demonstrate how to ethically and professionally transition to a different place of employment without creating conflict with any of the parties involved: Employer, employee, and client.
  • Discuss communication with clients about leaving that supports the employer, employee, and client.
  • Observe the perspective of the client in this professional relationship.
  • Compare a non-compete clause and a non-solicitation clause.
  • Discuss what it means to strive towards being a professional.
  • Observe work related problems that result from not acting with a professional attitude and behavior and how to prevent them.

Course Objectives

  • Define ethics and how it applies to this topic
  • Discuss whom a client "belongs" to in an employed situation
  • Evaluate the professional relationship of the client, the employer, and the employee that is occurring in all client situations
  • Compare and contrast non-solicitation vs non-compete and what that means
