Stock Options, Equity and other Compensation Issues
"One of the reasons that I decided to work for my employer (rather than a competing company) was the promise of stock options after I had been with them for a year.Â When I asked H.R. about it last week, nobody seemed to know anything about it.Â What can I do?"
Employers often want employees to think like company owners, by issuing stock or options to purchase stock to employees.Â There are a variety of methods for gaining ownership in a company, each of which may have a significant tax burden on both the company and the employees.
Wrongful cancellations of employee stock options, breach of an employee stock option agreement or wrongful termination of employee stock options are often sufficient grounds for legal action.
If your company has offered you stock, options or some other form of equity, or you believe that they've breached their agreement in connection with one of these grants, contact us
