What are the tax implications of deferred compensation? What claw-back provisions apply when there is a breach of a non-compete?
When recruiting and retaining key personnel, both employment and employee benefits counsel play important roles in the negotiation of employment and severance agreements. Whether you represent an employer, employee, or compensation committee, there is a tangled web of complex, evolving regulations and practicalities that must be considered in order to ensure that your client’s present and future interests are protected.
In this program, two highly experienced attorneys – one practicing in employment law, and the other in benefits – come together to discuss the standard provisions as well as special equity, compensation, benefits, restrictive covenants, and tax issues that need to be considered during the negotiation process. Invest just one hour of your day and be better prepared to anticipate potential challenges that may arise when drafting and negotiating employment agreements.
