NALTO® is an organization founded on very basic principles. We promote sound business practices in the vast and competitive locum tenens physician recruitment industry. NALTO® exists to ensure physicians and healthcare facilities are treated fairly. There are many benefits when working with a NALTO® firm.
High Code of Ethical Standards
All NALTO® company members must adhere to a written code of ethics that covers relationships between clients, physician providers, and other locum tenens firms. If you feel that a member company has acted in an unethical manner, you may file a formal complaint with the NALTO® ethics committee. A hearing will take place and, if it is determined that the Code has been violated, sanctions up to and including termination of membership may be involved.
Industry Standards of Practice
NALTO® members must also adhere to standards of practice that includes performance issues. When doing business with NALTO® associates, you are assured that the firm understands and applies the highest standards in the industry.
Arbitration and Dispute Committees
In addition, NALTO® provides an arbitration committee to settle disputes between member companies when monetary jurisdiction is involved. Although all NALTO® members agree to participate in the process, arbitration is not binding and parties may still seek a remedy through the legal system. However, if a dispute does end in a lawsuit, often the winner of the NALTO® arbitration enters the courtroom with an influential decision from its peers in the industry.
When choosing a locum tenens firm to represent you, NALTO® company members offer the highest standards in the industry. NALTO® company members are commited to both the physicians they place and the clients they represent. To begin working with a NALTO® firm, sign up as a physician or submit your job order today.
