NYC Pay History Ban Took Effect October 31

Beginning October 31, 2017, New York City employers are prohibited from  questioning job applicants on their salary history, with violators facing civil penalties of up to $250,000.

Earlier this year, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio signed into law a piece of legislation banning all New York City employers from questioning job applicants on their current or prior salary in an effort to  combat wage discrimination and inequity based on pay history.

Effective October 31, employers  are prohibited from doing the following:

  • Requesting salary information from applicants, whether on an application or at any time during the interview process.
  • Questioning an applicant’s current or previous employers about their salary history.
  • Conducting a search for publicly available records or reports in order to learn an applicant’s salary history.
  • Relying on salary history in determining an applicant’s compensation if they become aware of an applicant’s salary history.

It is not an unlawful practice if an applicant voluntarily and without prompting discloses their salary history.  The law also permits an employer to inquire into an applicant’s desired salary or salary range.

The New York City Commission on Human Rights is responsible for enforcing the law and  may penalize violators up to $125,000 for an unintentional violation, and up to $250,000 for violations that are the result of willful, wanton, or malicious conduct.

All New York employers (private and public) are encouraged to review all application materials and  job postings to ensure  compliance  by October 31, 2017. All employees involved in the hiring process should also be familiar with the law.

Registration is on for the Live Webiner November 15th – The Ins and Outs of Selling Your Private Practice- 7:30-9:30 PM EST

Its NOT TOO LATE to register, and NEVER TOO EARLY to start planning.  There are value makers and value takers in every practice – what are yours???? Corporate entities are buying practices across the country – are you making a deal with the devil or missing the boat????

THE INS and OUTS of SELLING YOUR PRIVATE PRACTICE

Live interactive webinar 11.15 2017 7:30-9:30 PM EST
 registration  – $95 includes all material, access to recording 24/7/365

If you envision a time when you will sell your practice, never forget that the best way to build a practice is to build it as if you’re going to sell it. It has to be built to last.

The sale of your practice should start long before it is announced publicly. Proper preparation is essential.
Not since the consolidation in our industry back in the 90’s has there been so much interest in therapy practice sales, mergers and consolidations.  Regardless of whom you might end up selling to, two points to always keep in mind are that (1) anything that increases the volume or the security of future revenue will increase the value of your practice, and (2) what makes your practice valuable to you will make it valuable to a buyer.

Learning Objectives:

1) Understand the specific criteria used to determine the valuation of a practice, including EBITDA, goodwill, infrastructure etc. and what are viewed as value makers versus value takers in the industry.
2) Understand the steps necessary  to prepare your practice to bring it to market and when to get this process started
3) Find out the financial preparation and forms you need to have in place and for review during  due diligence
4) Discuss differences between an outright acquisition, merger, and structured buy in and what determines the best fit for your scenario
5) Understand what makes negotiating with a fellow therapists versus a corporate entity so different and how
you can level the playing field
6)  Discuss the pros and cons of using a broker or intermediary and what makes a qualified buyer
7)  See what you need to do so that you can answer the #1 question: “Can this practice exist without you?”
8)  Understand the steps necessary in selling a practice including non disclosure agreements (NDA), letters of intent (LOI) and purchase agreements.
YES YES YES!!!!  if you are considering buying another therapist’s practice, this info is VERY relevant for you too!

This webinar is to take the angst out of selling a practice and present the information in user friendly, logical steps. The issue will be presented from both the perspective of the buyer and the seller. Live Q/A!

This webinar is presented by Iris Kimberg, MS PT OTR
CEO of NYTherapyguide.com who, on her own, sold her therapy agency in a multi million $ deal to a Fortune 500 company. She has worked on valuations of many  practices and helped sell over 2 dozen OT PT and ST practices in the last number of years.

If you cannot make the live webinar, you will be able to access the recorded version 24/7/365.  All registrants will have access to the recording.
Ask questions live.  Watch from your home on your desktop, laptop, ipad or smart phone. Iris has presented this material for the APTA PPS conference and privately to over 300 therapists. Early rate registration – $85 until Oct 31.  $95 Nov.1

A very well established, highly regarded pediatric/adult  sensory based practice in Central Florida is available for sale. This is a great opportunity to purchase a thriving practice or to establish a fantastic second location.

Due to the upcoming retirement of the owner, this fantastic sensory based private practice is being offered for sale. It is almost exclusively self-pay, averages a 100 plus productive visits per week, receives approximately 10 new patients per month, and has long term part and full time OTRs and COTAs, who treat the majority of the patients and are eager to stay on at the practice under new ownership. It enjoys a stellar reputation with local physicians, schools, and colleagues for its individualized care and unique sensory based treatment approach. The practice is fully up to date with EMRs, a Computer Network, File Server, Multiple Work stations, Wireless Router and Cable Internet. Although the practice is currently owned by an OT, it is felt that a like minded health professional from another discipline could successfully run and expand the practice. The practice is located very close to one of Florida’s fastest growing cities. The  1500 square feet office includes 3 treatment spaces, each with multiple suspensions, a testing and evaluation room, a kitchenette and office spaces. The lease is reasonable, transferable and renewable. An added potential bonus is that the building owner has indicated willingness to sell, providing an opportunity not only for real estate ownership but also to increase  space utilization up to approximately 4,500SF, bring in other health professionals, services etc.  For any party interested in both the real estate and the professional practice, please note that these would be 2 separate, mutually exclusive transactions.

Full financial information including but not limited to profit and loss statements, balance sheets, and tax returns for the last three years are available for inspection. The gross revenue for the company is over $500K, and is projected to reach $600K for 2017.

While the client waitlist suggests that there is tangible evidence for growth, the current owner’s prioritization of service and effectiveness – rather than expansion, continues to yield a solid profit margin. Services, almost exclusively private pay, are underwritten by strong interest and commitment of parents.  Currently there is no active marketing/social media program which could also drive additional clients to the practice.

The practice is being offered at $395,000.00 with negotiable terms.  The owner is willing to stay on for a reasonable transition period, and might consider longer-term employment opportunities with new owner.
