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 concludes on December 17 with the ninth installment, Unseen Pitfalls in Employment Agreements from a Benefits Standpoint.

Employment agreements often contain a number of benefits-related provisions which can be potential landmines for the unwary drafter. The issues include:

  • The manner in which equity is promised to new employees for both public and nonpublic employers
  • The timing of severance payments
  • Assuring valid considerations for a release of claims
  • Complications in the drafting noncompete provisions
  • ACA concerns relating to healthcare subsidies
  • Good reason provisions which are deemed to contain “bad” good reasons

In this session, we will discuss how to successfully navigate through these potentially dangerous waters, providing drafting guidance and current best practices. The hands-on techniques that are discussed will be of value to all that have a role in negotiating with employees and drafting employee agreements.
