Jeremy Goldstein explaining the benefits of knockout options

Companies across the country are reaching the point where they are stopping to give employees stock options. Some companies do it to save money, other times the reasons are far more complex.

Jeremy Goldstein is an advocate for knockout options. Stock options have become the better option when compared to insurance, equities or higher wages.

As the stock value increase the employees personal portfolio receive a boost. This will cause employees to work harder at attracting new clients and satisfying existing clients.

When a corporation decides to stop offering stock options, they need a new gameplan. One option for companies is the knockout.

This style of stock options has the same requirements as conventional stocks but the difference is if the shares drop too low, the employees lose them.

When companies offer knockout option benefits, non-staff investors dont face threats from options. This allows current stockholders to worry less about less ownership shares.

Knockout options often result in lower compensation figures for executives. These options don’t solve every problem but they do tackle some of the problems faced by companies.

A New Worker’s Rights Law For Philly: Litigation Specialist Karl Heideck Shares His Perspective

The beginning of 2017 was looking bright for worker’s rights activists in the Philadelphia area. On January 23, Mayor Jim Kenney signed a new law that would make the city the first to prohibit inquiries from private sector employers about applicant salary histories. However, legal opposition to the law soon emerged from the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philly.

The law, in part, was designed to help close the wage gap between men and women in Pennsylvania by forbidding employers from collecting job candidate salary data without permission and asking job applicants to share previous salaries, among others. Some experts speculate that the policy will mostly affect employers that are headquartered outside on the Philadelphia city limits, some of whom are likely to face fines of up to $2,000 for violating provisions.

These circumstances led to challenges from large conglomerate companies like Comcast Communications who filed a district court motion seeking a preliminary injunction on April 6th—just months before the law would have gone into effect. The city retaliated, however, with the filing of a motion to have the lawsuit dismissed on the ground that it failed to specify how the legislation would injure businesses—to which, the district court agreed.
