What Is My Scope of Employment?

All medical assistants, regardless of their amount of education, training, experience and credentials must realize that they are subject to certain laws and limitations and must act only within their scope of employment when practicing their trade.

An act within the scope of employment is incidental to the employer’s business, or in this case, the doctor’s medical practice and is done to further the doctor’s interest. If a medical assistant departs so far from his/her duties that his/her acts are no longer for his employer’s benefit, then these acts are not within the scope of his/her employment. If a tortuous act by the medical assistant arose out of an activity which was within his/her scope of employment, or ordinary course of business, then that act may be considered to be within the scope of employment.
