Executive Compensation 101: The Basics

June 24, 2021 at 9:30am10:30am
Online Webinar

Join us on June 24 for "Executive Compensation 101: The Basics." Employee benefits attorneys Eric Altholz and Bill Jewett will present this informative webinar. Business owners and managers seeking advice on executive pay programs can readily find answers to their specific questions, but seldom have an opportunity to consider the bigger picture. This webinar presents an overview of common executive compensation programs, explaining the legal and tax reasons for typical design features along with some critical litigation and compliance risks. Topics covered include short- and long-term incentive plans, stock options, restricted stock, restricted stock units and phantom stock, deferred compensation, change-in-control agreements, and separation pay. Examples will focus on privately held businesses, but consideration will also be given to tax-exempt organizations.
