Equity and Stock

Equity and stock compensation includes revenues from restricted stock, restricted stock units, stock options, phantom stock, and stock appreciation rights granted to an employee.  Equity compensation is taxable and vested, meaning that the employee cannot access the money until a specific period of time or services have been served.  At Sidney L. Gold & Associates, we work closely with our clients to formulate and negotiate the terms and conditions of the stock plan and employment agreements.

Equity and stock compensation are part of stock plans, which specify the conditions of the grant.  The terms of the stock plan are not usually negotiable once in place, however modifications can be made in the event of the sale of a company, or when an employee retires, dies, or is terminated.  It’s important for employees to fully comprehend the terms and conditions of their stock grants.  If an employer does not comply with the terms and conditions, our lawyers will arbitrate and litigate as needed.

For more information on equity and stock grants, contact the Philadelphia employment law firm of Sidney L. Gold & Associates at 215-569-1999, or complete our online contact form.
