CLE-Equity Based Compensation
May 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Equity Based Compensation Plans: Retain, Reward, Retire
When a client is ready to go beyond a company match in a 401(k) plan or a profit-sharing contribution, they look to employee benefits lawyers to create equity compensation plans that reward employees based on the client’s business goals. Equity compensation is no longer just for C-suite executives or employees in a start-up. Equity compensation can be used to attract and retain talented employees, reward performance at an individual or business unit level, and support employees’ retirement goals. This presentation helps lawyers understand what types of equity compensation plans their clients should consider, how a well-structured plan can help an employer and its employees meet their near-term financial goals, and what features of a plan should be considered in anticipation of a liquidity event.
