Anatomy of an Employment Agreement

April 30, 2014

On April 30, 2014, Morgan Lewis’s Employee Benefits Practice hosted the first installment of the Executive Compensation Basics Webinar Series on employment agreements.

Employment agreements can be deceiving. Provisions that make good business sense may create adverse tax consequences under section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC). In this one-hour webinar, we discussed best practices for structuring employment agreements, avoiding tax pitfalls, and ensuring that the agreement accomplishes your goals.

Topics discussed included:

  • Provisions every employment agreement should contain
  • Traps for the unwary under section 409A
  • Healthcare continuation
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Design trends and best practices
