The means by which the modern nomadic workforce is engaged, employed and compensated presents a myriad of legal, regulatory and tax issues – including the use of equity compensation.  Companies are increasingly pressed to formulate a comprehensive, practical game plan to maximize regulatory and tax compliance along with practical and efficient administrative oversight. 

Please join us at the September 23rd NASPP Austin chapter meeting where we will discuss the various issues that arise when equity awards are granted to globally-mobile employees, including employer/employee tax obligations, securities law requirements and labor and employment rules, and the strategies that companies can and should develop to deal with such issues.

Topics will include:

  • Key legal, regulatory and tax compliance risks for mobile employees 
  • Effective grant documentation for employee transfers during lifetime of awards
  • Best practices and risk mitigation strategies for managing mobile employee grants
