What every worker needs to know about stock based compensation

Josh here – Samuel Deane is a financial advisor who specializes in stock-based compensation and all of the variations on equity ownership for employees. Today, many employees of companies are being partially compensated for their work with shares in the companies they work for. But these arrangements can take many different forms, from restricted stock units to stock options to grants.

Before you opt to become a shareholder in your employer’s stock as part of your pay, you need to understand the pros and cons and be sure to ask the hard questions, like “what happens if I leave or get fired?” or “what about a change of control?”

I asked Sam to come on and talk a bit about why this topic is so important for the next generation of workers to grasp. You can learn more about Sam’s practice here.
