Venable Webcast Series on New Executive Compensation Rules

This event has already occurred.

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.

Stock ownership--or something close to it--continues to be a key feature of how corporate America rewards and incentivizes its work force. The third program of the series will focus on how the final 409A regulations affect equity compensation programs of all types. Join our panelists to learn how the IRS's new executive compensation rules may require you to change your stock option plans, stock appreciation rights ("SARs") and phantom stock programs--and what steps you must take to protect your employees, and your company.
