Philadelphia Equity Agreements
Equity agreements define the conditions of compensation from stock options, restricted stock, and phantom stock. The equity agreement identifies the time period that an employee can earn compensation or be paid. Vesting periods within the equity agreement refer to the period of time that equity compensation is earned by or is to be paid to the employee. These agreements and terms can be modified in certain situations such as the sale of the corporation, employee retirement or death, or if the employee is terminated.
