About the Program

This webinar will explore the critical details of navigating employment settlements. Gain clarity on tax implications of employment claims, and discover why tax planning for potential claims should start before filing. Our panelists will also explore the enforceability of key terms within these agreements from the plaintiff and defense perspectives, including general releases, waivers of rights, confidentiality and non-disparagement clauses, restrictive covenants, non-monetary terms, liquidated damages, and more. Join us for this deep dive into employment settlements.

This program is presented by the Labor & Employment section chaired by Andie Fields and vice chaired by Lorena Vazquez and co-sponsored by the Taxation Law section chaired by Michele Weiss. Find out more at
