Employment agreements. Severance policies. Stock options. Executive pay packages. Termination agreements. Golden parachutes. Supplemental retirement programs.
Does your organization have any of these? If the answer to that question is "yes" (and it probably is), then be sure to register and tune in to Venable's complimentary lunch time Webcast series entitled "409A Boot Camp: Getting Your Plans in Shape."
This Webcast series will examine how the IRS's final rules under a new part of the Federal tax law, known as "Section 409A," treat many common business agreements and practices as deferred compensation, which can expose employees to significant financial risk unless action is taken to update these agreements and practices before December 31, 2007.
These new rules affect ALL employers, regardless of size--whether they are public or private companies, for-profit or tax-exempt organizations. December 31st will be here before you know it. So be sure to join Venable's Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation attorneys for this Webcast series, and learn what steps you need to take in order to best protect your company and your executives.
WEBCAST 1: This is Your Wake-Up Call: Hot Topics and Compliance Deadlines

The first program of the series will set the stage by briefly reviewing the development of Section 409A, and then will highlight the major aspects of the final regulations. Presentations will describe what is -- and what is not -- deferred compensation under Section 409A, developments in the treatment of stock compensation, and the many changes affecting executive employment contracts. Special focus will be on transition rules and the "rocket docket" schedule required to meet the compliance deadline of December 31, 2007.
