About this Program

In this timely program, attorneys Ardra O’Neal and Christian Simpson discuss executive employment agreements in today's uncertain economic climate. The anatomy of the agreement is examined from both the employer and employee perspective, with attention paid to the diverging goals of each party. O’Neal and Simpson also focus on the enforceability of non-compete agreements and compare the dispute resolution options of litigation and arbitration.  This course is a must see for any organization that wants to use executive agreements as a tool to recruit and retain the most talented professionals, while still protecting the company from any possible legal issues.

Agenda:
I. Benefits of an Executive Agreement
II. At-Will vs. Contract Employment
III. Compensation
IV. Non-Compete Agreements
V . Termination
VI. Dispute Resolution
