Jeremy Goldstein, A Key Player in New York Law

Jeremy Goldstein of Jeremy L. Goldstein and Associates has offered some guidance to help employers and employees. His advice is for companies to consider offering “knockout options” in place of traditional stock options. There are many benefits to using this method.

 

Knockout options work by still offering stock options, however, the value of the stocks can only drop to a certain point before they are sold. This offers the employee the security of knowing their investment is safe. It gives the employer the benefit of still being able to offer the benefit without having to worry about it dropping to nothing and affecting employee loyalty and morale. Companies also benefit from a reduced accounting burden. The employer no longer has to constantly monitor the stock to make adjustments. Jeremy Goldstein asserts that this idea is in the best interest of both employers and employees.
