Part 2 – Employment Law Issues for Business Sellers
Learn how to develop a strategic approach to employment agreements to make the business attractive to potential buyers; audit and resolve employment-related issues that are most likely to derail a sale or result in a purchase price reduction; and decide who is inside and outside the information tent and when to bring them in.  Understand stay bonuses and other techniques to get key team members to closing (and beyond if it helps the deal).  Consider the seller’s role with respect to employment agreements between buyer and key employees who are staying, and potential conflicts of interest in this process.  Increase your negotiation skills concerning post-closing employment covenants, including offers of employment, employee compensation, retention pools and other employee incentives.  Ensure that the transition of employees from seller to buyer doesn’t inadvertently violate employment laws.
