Sen. S. McBride
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 8 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO THE PROFESSIONAL SERVICE CORPORATIONS AND TITLE 24 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO PROFESSIONS AND OCCUPATIONS.
This Act creates additional partnership and employment opportunities, as opposed to the current framework of employment-only opportunities within the corporate employment setting, and gives the same parity to Delaware physical therapists, physicians, and podiatrists as exists in all other 49 states who already permit this. This Act permits physical therapists, physicians, and podiatrists to organize as a professional corporation on the basis that they are licensed professionals "legally authorized to render... qualified related professional services." Further, this Act enables professional fees to be divided with physical therapists, physicians, and podiatrists who practice within the same corporate entity. Finally, this Act also makes technical corrections to conform existing law to the standards of the Delaware Legislative Drafting Manual.
Takes effect upon being signed into law
