This complimentary series of engaging and informative courses will address the most significant issues on which employers should focus with respect to the maintenance and governance of employee benefit plans and how COVID-19 affects workplace benefits.

The series continues on November 12 with the sixth installment, Equity-Based Compensation Plans: Types of Programs and Possible Pitfalls.

Equity-based compensation provides a significant opportunity to incentivize and reward employees and to align the interests of executives and the company’s stakeholders. However, aspects of equity-based compensation can create unintended and even unanticipated results. Warren Fusfeld and Anne Sanchez LaWer discuss the pros and cons of different types of equity-based compensation programs, including traditional equity (e.g. stock options and restricted stock grants) and phantom equity alternatives (e.g. restricted stock units and stock appreciation rights), as well as equity compensation strategies for limited liability companies that are treated as partnerships for federal tax purposes. They will share real life examples of equity programs gone wrong and considerations to take into account when implementing an equity program, as well as tips to help align equity programs with your company’s overall business strategy and compensation goals.
