Settlement Agreement Share Options

If you hold shares and/or stock options in the company, it is important to know whether you are treated as Good Leaver or not, so that you can continue to benefit from them. It`s helpful to know the terms of a shareholders` agreement or stock option program that you might participate in before you mingle with a lawyer, as any rights you have in this regard should be mentioned in the settlement agreement. The plenary session of the Family Court against Weber (2009) FamCAFC 137 overturned the decision of Federal Judge Baumann, which treated as a financial resource stock options not covered due to performance barriers, including the maintenance in the company necessary for the exercise of options. The Court decided that they should have been regarded as property.
