Session 1 Description:  If you feel that you have a good handle on global compliance issues, let’s take it up a notch!  In this presentation, Barbara Klementz of Baker McKenzie will cover a number of complex issues that can cause headaches for even the most sophisticated stock plan professionals:

  • Treatment of awards held by employees on a leave of absence and the merits of a global leave of absence policy
  • Favorable retirement provisions (based on age or age + service)
  • Tying equity awards to non-complete/non-solicitation/confidentiality covenants
  • Clawback provisions
  • The rise of Total Rewards Statements and inclusion of equity awards in TSRs
  • Special tax issues for awards held by terminated employees
  • Eletronic acceptance - myths and facts

Session 2 Description:  What employees do with vested RSUs has long been a mystery to most companies. When shares hit the employee account, plan sponsor visibility is lost. And, while ESPP share selling behavior has been seen through disposition reporting, companies have very little insight into how selling behavior is linked to plan type and demographic variances.  In this session, Emily Cervino of Fidelity Stock Plan Services uncovers a host of new views into these previously unknown areas,  including  how the value of the payout impacts behavior, what ESPP discount levels create more employee holders, what impact age has, if tenure and location make a difference, and how Section 16 behavior varies.  And, mixing and matching of all data areas creates a virtual menu of choices on how to assess employee selling behavior.
