Keeping Employment Issues from Derailing Your Deal
Laura Friedel and Russell Shapiro, Levenfeld Pearlstein, LLC
Employment law issues can and do derail transactions. Whether the issue is changing status of partners, existing employment liabilities, unclear existing employment documents, application and enforceability of non-solicits, transfer of benefits plans, handling the transition of incentive pay programs and paid time off, synchronizing employment terms, or the mechanics of the transition itself, the key is understanding the issues and getting in front of them early in the process. In this session, we will discuss the common employment law issues that can come into play during mergers and acquisitions and offer tips on how to reach resolution and get the deal done.
