Can an employer require employees to be vaccinated against influenza? And, a COVID-19 vaccine likely will be approved in the not-to-distant future. What about that vaccine when it becomes available? These are questions with which many organizations are grappling today. With the confluence of what is expected to be a very active influenza season and the ongoing and unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, employers are contemplating how best to protect their workforce and clients/customers/patients.
One of the most effective ways to achieve this is a mandatory vaccine policy, but is that right for your organization? Mandatory vaccination programs are not new. Depending on your business, a mandatory vaccine policy may be the industry norm. What factors should you consider? What processes would you need to develop to address exceptions?
CAN YOUR BUSINESS MANDATE VACCINATIONS?
In general the answer is yes. Although federal and state laws may vary, such programs are permissible provided any mandatory vaccination policy incorporates processes to address the required exceptions: medical accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA); and religious accommodations under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII).

Thinking About Selling Your Practice? Preparation is key and the difference between a successful sale and seller’s regret.
Step 1: Call Your Financial Planner
Be sure that you can afford to leave the business
Most buyers will require a comprehensive non-compete and you should be certain that you are financially prepared to retire, sell, or move before signing any restrictions.
You will also want to ensure that you are planning for the income you are about to receive. Are there vehicles in place or options that are best to ensure the purchase price is put to its best use for you.
Consider post sale options if not retirement – are you going to be employed by the buyer? Are you selling to an associate and will phase out? Are you just moving and will need to find new employment/open a practice?
Step 2: Visit Your Accountant
Your business is only worth as much as can be defined on paper.
If a potential buyer cannot make sense of your accounts and assets, you may leave significant value on the table.
Get your financial history in order by reviewing tax returns, profit statements, AR reports, and payroll history for prior 3-4 years.
Clean up creative bookkeeping – you will have to promise the buyer that your financial statements are true and accurate.
Have your accountant help value assets of your business – or use an appraiser if necessary.
Discuss company structure – there may be restructuring needs or you may need to transition to a different structure for tax purposes.
