Terminating the Employment of a Minority Shareholder

Date: Wednesday, January 20, 2016 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM
Venue: Presidents Room / Minnesota State Bar Association  Minneapolis, MN United States  Get Directions
Total Price: $35.00

Deadline to Register:  Monday, January 18, 2016

Terminating the employment of a minority shareholder in a closely-held company presents different considerations than the termination of a typical employee; especially, when the termination comes in the midst of a dispute over the control or direction of the business.  Employers must consider not only possible claims by the shareholder/employee arising from the status as employee, but also claims arising from the status as shareholder.  Moreover, the lack of documentation, or inadequate documentation, governing the relationship between the shareholder/employee, the Company and/or other shareholders is often highlighted in this scenario.  This presentation will review issues unique to shareholder employees, the legal processes available to resolve disputes arising out the termination of a shareholder employee, and recommendations to avoid disputes and costly litigation through proper documentation and corporate governance. 

Registration and lunch begin at 11:30 a.m. followed by the CLE starting at 12:00 p.m.
